Harvard Materials Research Center

This MRSEC supports a broad interdisciplinary research program that investigates the mechanical properties of crystalline and glassy materials at scales intermediate between atomistic and continuum, focuses on and exploits microfluidics to develop novel materials, and explores innovative ways to make stimuli-responsive active materials by self-assembly of soft materials.  The MRSEC operates a broad education and outreach research program that includes summer research experiences for undergraduates and teachers, activities for K-12 students, and programs to enhance the participation of members of underrepresented groups in science and engineering at the graduate, postgraduate level, and faculty levels.
