UConn’s Innovation Partnership Building (IPB) at the UConn Tech Park has new leadership. Professor of Materials Science and Engineering, Dr. S. Pamir Alpay will serve as Executive Director of the state-of-the-art facility and associated industry partnerships, effective immediately. Dr. Alpay replaces Dr. Radenka Maric, who served in the role until her promotion to Vice President for Research at UConn and UConn Health this past July.
“We are thrilled to have someone with Pamir’s extensive experience as a scientist and collaborator leading the Tech Park,” says Dr. Maric. “Having already worked closely with several of the companies associated with the Tech Park and currently leading the UTAS Center for Advanced Materials which will be housed at the IPB, I am confident that Dr. Alpay will be able to hit the ground running as Executive Director. We are excited to see him build on the progress already achieved by centers located at the IPB, the School of Engineering, and the Institute of Materials Science.”
