The Controlled Release Society (CRS) is a global collective of scientists, engineers, and technical professionals dedicated to the advancement of drug delivery science and technology. The CRS College of Fellows aims to recognize distinguished professionals in industry, government and academia who have made impactful contributions to delivery science through research, technology and product development, and education.

Elizabeth Nance has been a pioneer of multidisciplinary research in engineering, neuroscience and nanotechnology to find innovative solutions and treatments of diseases in the developing brain. The Nance Lab works to develop more effective nanotherapeutics for brain disease treatment, with emphasis on the vastly underserved neonatal and pediatric populations. Researchers use imaging, molecular biology, and data science tools with in vitro and in vivo models to track changes in the brain that might influence therapeutic behavior and outcomes.

Nance’s research has helped to fill critical knowledge gaps in neonatal brain disease and drug delivery. Her lab currently has 4 provisional patents on nanotherapeutic platforms to facilitate translation of these technologies into the clinical setting.
