The Bio- and Nano-technology Center is housed under the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences at the University of Maryland School of Pharmacy.
Bruce Yu, PhD, professor of pharmaceutical sciences and director of the Bio- and Nano-technology Center, provides vision, leadership, scientific direction, and administrative oversight for the Center.
The Executive Council includes the director, co-director, and senior members of the Center who assist in identifying priority research themes and funding opportunities. The council promotes interactions between members of the Bio- and Nano-technology Center and beyond to encourage goal attainment in the priority research areas.
The Advisory Board advises the Center’s membership on scientific and administrative issues. The board includes scientists and administrative leaders external to the Center membership who are leaders in the field of drug delivery, nanotechnology, and translational research, or who serve in key administrative positions in the University System of Maryland, to facilitate collaborative research. The board reviews the annual report of the Center and provides advice and counsel for future center activities.
