This term Uday Pal, the founding Head of the BU Division of Materials Science and Engineering, is stepping down from the leadership team. It is time for us to thank him for his leadership and all his efforts on behalf of the materials science community at BU. Starting the Division was a lot of work given that almost nothing about the organization existed when he began. He developed a strategic plan across multiple departments and colleges, helped put the staff together, created the processes and got everything up and running. My work as the second Head is immeasurably easier because of all his efforts. As we grow and evolve the Division, we owe a real debt of gratitude to Uday for his vision as the founding Head. We wish him a hearty thanks.
All the best,
