At the recent American Physics Society meeting, MRSEC center directors and other representatives discussed new and improved opportunities in the field. The March meeting, which was held in New Orleans, brought together thousands of experienced and aspiring scientists looking to learn about the latest scientific research from industry and universities. Meeting highlights included a plenary on science policy in the 21st century, discussions on polymer opportunities across NSF, and poster sessions highlighting ongoing research. As part of a two-day speed coaching session, Program Directors with NSF’s Division of Materials Research also met one-on-one with interested participants to answer about NSF opportunities and discuss other relevant topics.
