On June 1, 2010, the Task Force to Study Nanobiotechnology was authorized (Chapter 163, Acts of 2010).

Nanobiotechnology is a rapidly developing field of study researching biosystems at the nano level, where one nanometer equals one-billionth of a meter. The Task Force studied how Maryland benefits from nanobiotechnology and what the State currently is doing to support the growth of this field of study. The Task Force made recommendations on what Maryland should do to promote the growth of nanobiotechnology in the State.

On January 1, 2011, the Task Force submitted its report to the Governor and General Assembly. Authorization for the Task Force ended May 31, 2011.
