His lecture will also examine the defense and strategic dilemmas of India and its future prospects.

Dr. Pathak has worked in academics for over 15 years at University of South Florida College of Pharmacy in Tampa, FL, where he is currently the Associate Dean for Faculty Affairs. He has directed the Center for Nanotechnology Education, Research and Applications (CENTRA) for two years and is associated with Nanotechnology Education and Research Center in College of Engineering and Translational Nanomedicine Center in the College of Medicine. Dr. Pathak has over 100 research publications, edited four books about nanotechnology, and received several research grants, the most recent for antioxidant nano delivery systems in neurodegenerative diseases.

Dr. Pathak is actively involved in many professional and cultural organizations. His recent area of interest is eastern and indigenous perspectives in global sustainability and conflict resolution. Dr. Pathak received his BPharm, MPharm and Ph.D. in Pharmaceutics from Nagpur University in India and a postdoctoral training at Royal Free Hospital in London. He completed his Executive MBA and MS in Conflict Management at Sullivan University, Louisville, KY.

“We are extremely pleased and honored to have Dr. Pathak come and present at Shawnee State as part of the Distinguished Lecture Series.
