Rudy Juliano obtained his Ph.D. in Biophysics at the University of Rochester and then did postdoctoral work in Experimental Pathology at Roswell Park Memorial Institute. He has served on the faculty of the University of Toronto, the University of Texas Medical School at Houston, and the School of Medicine of the University of North Carolina. At Carolina he served as Chair of Pharmacology for 16 years and is now a Professor in that department. His research interests include cell adhesion proteins, signal transduction, drug delivery systems, and the molecular therapeutics of cancer. He was involved in some of the earliest work using lipid nanoparticles (liposomes) as delivery agents for therapy of infectious diseases and cancer. He has served on numerous NIH study sections as well as the editorial boards of Cancer Research, Pharmaceutical Research, Biochimica et Biophysica Acta, Journal of Drug Targeting, Oligonucleotides, Molecular Pharmacology, Advanced Drug Delivery Reviews, and the Journal of Cell Biology.
