WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — An honorable man at Purdue University just received yet another honor.

Suresh Garimella has been chosen as a fellow to the National Academy of Inventors.

Garimella is the Executive Vice President for Research and Partnerships at Purdue.

He is also the co-author of over 500 publications and 12 patents – and nothing short of humble.

He says while he is honored to be recognized for his success, he believes the greatest thing he can do is to train the next generation.

"I particularly care about mentoring our graduate students to do the best work they can to be great communicators of their work. To put their work out in publications and in patents where it makes sense," Garimella said.

There are more than 900 NAI fellows across the nation.

Garimella oversees Purdue's $600 million research enterprise, including Discovery Park.
