Craig Lindsley, PhD, co-director of the Vanderbilt Center for Neuroscience Drug Discovery (VCNDD), has been named a fellow of the National Academy of Inventors (NAI).

Lindsley is the William K. Warren Jr. Professor of Medicine, University Professor of Pharmacology and Biochemistry in the School of Medicine and University Professor of Chemistry in the College of Arts and Science. He is one of 148 fellows elected this year and the fifth fellow from Vanderbilt elected since 2015.

Lindsley was recognized for his pioneering use of technology-enabled synthesis, which has had a transformative effect on drug discovery, and for development of drug-like compounds that, by adjusting the activity of receptors in the brain, may lead to new treatments for a wide range of brain disorders.
