That information is not embedded in the transmitted ADSB data, so...no.

Theoretically, if the transmission is not using "anonymous mode", the unique ID of the transmitter could be cross-referenced at the FAA aircraft registry website, and details like the aircraft type, serial number, owner name and address, etc. could be retrieved.   However, that would require an internet connection, which is not generally available while airborne.

Edit:  Walter beat me to it by a few seconds!

If you're low enough to get a cell signal, you could try Flight Aware or Plane Finder. Plane Finder is especially fun if you ante up the five bucks for the Augmented Reality version, which shows the info for any aircraft you point the phone at. (If, of course, it's visible in the main map. Many are not.)
