FROM THE DIRECTOR’S DESK

It has been my joy and pride to see this Center grow in leaps since we began in 2006. Our PG programs started in 2007 along with a PhD program. Now we offer six PG degree courses, one UG program in Molecular Medicine, and a PhD program, all of which are highly interdisciplinary. The field of Nanosciences and Molecular Medicine has captured the imagination of scientists, the industry and students for the opportunities that have opened up. Our programs are very translationally oriented, that is we strive to develop better and more efficient and more durable products in healthcare and technology – nanomedicines that are superior to conventional medicines and energy products with capacities and power that cannot be duplicated with conventional products. We seek to inspire, to serve, to mentor and to innovate. Our students and our Center have come to expect and sustain excellence. This is why we are the highest ranked Nano Bio Center in the country.
