Jerome Schultz received his B.S. and M.S in Chemical Engineering from Columbia University, and his Ph.D. in Biochemistry from the University of Wisconsin in 1958. He started his career in the pharmaceutical industry (Lederle Laboratories) then joined the University of Michigan, where he was Chairman of the Department of Chemical Engineering. He spent two years at the National Science Foundation as Deputy Director of the Engineering Centers Program. In 1987 he joined the University of Pittsburgh as Director of the Center for Biotechnology and Bioengineering, and was the Founding Chairman of the Department of Bioengineering, a nationally ranked degree program in Bioengineering. He recently spent a year at NASA’s Ames Research Center as a Senior Scientist in their Fundamental Biology Program. In 2004 Dr. Schultz joined the faculty at the UC Riverside to and founded the Department of Bioengineering its undergraduate and graduate degree programs, he also serves as the Director of the newly formed Center for Bioengineering Research.

He is a member of the National Academy of Engineering, a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Sciences, Fellow of the Biomedical Engineering Society, Editor of Biotechnology Progress, and was a founding Fellow and President of the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering.
