NEW $18 Million MRSEC FROM THE NSF to advance materials research
A new center at the University of Delaware is advancing research to transform the way materials are made. The new Materials Research Science and Engineering Center, or MRSEC, the UD Center for Hybrid, Active, and Responsive Materials (UD CHARM) will drive fundamental materials science research with the potential to enable critical innovations in biomedicine, security, sensing and more. The effort is led by UD’s Thomas H. Epps, III, the Thomas and Kipp Gutshall Professor of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering with a joint appointment in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering, with $18 million in funding from the National Science Foundation. LaShanda Korley, Distinguished Professor of Materials Science and Engineering and a joint appointment in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, will co-direct and coordinate operational aspects of the center.
UD gives voice to a diverse group of early-career researchers.
