I led the “Biomaterials Initiative” in New Jersey since its inception in 1992. When the state of NJ awarded a $3.6m “Excellence Award” in 1997 the New Jersey Center for Biomaterials (NJCBM) was officially established and I was appointed as it “Founding Director”. I have continued to serve in this role developing the center into a major, nationally recognized hub for biomaterials science.
