UM's Kirwan doesn't get $24M wish for nanotechnology R&D
The University System of Maryland's top administrator has been rebuffed in his initial efforts to secure $24 million from state lawmakers for nanotechnology research.
Chancellor William E. "Brit" Kirwan confirmed this week that the Ehrlich administration, citing continued budgetary woes, is not including his request for $8 million in the state's fiscal 2006 budget to build new research facilities and recruit star scientists working in nanotechnology.
