Anand Gadre graduated with his Bachelor of Science in Applied Physics from the University of Mumbai (India) in 1994. He received the MS Degree at the Institute of Science in 1997 and completed his doctorate (Ph.D.) in 2000 from the Institute of Chemical Technology (ICT), Mumbai in Polymer Physics. In 2001 Anand joined University of Maryland (USA) as a Postdoctoral Research Associate to pursue research in the areas of Micro and Nanotechnology. In 2002 Anand worked as a Postdoctoral Research Associate in Georgetown University at Washington DC and later worked as a Managing Scientist in Georgetown’s Nanoscience and Microtechnology laboratory (GNuLab). In 2004 Anand was appointed as an Assistant Professor of Nanobioscience at the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering in the State University of New York at Albany and later was promoted as an Associate Professor of Nanobioscience with tenure. While working at CNSE, Anand also achieved his Master in Business Management (MBA) degree from the State University of New York at Albany. In March 2011 Anand joined as the Director of the Stem Cell Instrumentation and Nanofabrication Foundry at the University of California, Merced, where he is currently administering core research facilities and pursuing his research in the areas of Nanobiotechnology. Anand is an active researcher and has published several peer reviewed papers, co-authored book chapters, served as a referee for several national and international journals, served as chair and invited speaker in several national and international conferences, has delivered lectures and taught advanced courses on polymeric materials and nanobiotechnology at the undergraduate and graduate levels. In addition, Anand is a trained percussionist; has a Bachelor degree in Music and actively participates in musical concerts as well as teaches percussion instruments.
