During this year's Tech Launch Arizona (TLA) Expo and Awards Ceremony, CBC Professor Robin Polt was the first winner to the podium when they announced him as Inventor of the Year.

TLA recognized Dr. Polt for his research in developing novel synthetic amino acids in glycopeptides, and for his hand in launching two companies during his time at UArizona.

The event, including Dr. Polt's thank-you speech, can be viewed on YouTube.

The annual TLA event is aimed at celebrating inventors, startups, and ecosystem drivers that have had the greatest influence in advancing the impact of UArizona inventions.

Most recently, Professor Polt co-founded Teleport Pharmaceuticals along CBC Professor Michael Heien and UArizona Associate Professor Torsten Falk. You can read more about Dr. Polt's research in an in-depth article that was released this summer.
