MRSEC Receives NSF Grant

The University of Minnesota Materials Research Science and Engineering Center (MRSEC) has received a $17.8 million grant from the National Science Foundation. Over a dozen MSI Principal Investigators are participating faculty at the Center (see list below). The mission of the Center is to enable “important areas of future technology, ranging from biomedicine, separations, and plastic electronics to security, renewable energy, and information technology” (from the MRSEC website). The U was one of only 12 universities nationwide to receive NSF funding this year for a materials research center.
