Solutions to 21st Century Grand Challenges

Our research focuses on materials that can improve our lives today and into the next century.

E-Collaboration, Data Sciences & Informatics

IMat links research teams and enhances access of data. MATIN is one way of making this possible. 

Future Workforce for Materials Innovation

Our researchers of tomorrow will need to expand the boundaries of traditional materials disciplines.

Accelerating Discovery & Development

Using interdisciplinary collaboration and strategic partnerships is critical. FLAMEL establishes new models to this end.

Shared Resources Initiatives

A major initiative for the Institute for Materials is to provide enhanced access for campus faculty to materials related equipment. There are two primary thrusts related to this initiative: Materials User Facilities and the Materials Equipment Database.
