NSF-MRSEC Booth at the International Materials Research Congress

MRSEC representatives and conference attendees interact at the International Materials Research Congress in Cancun, Mexico.

Following a successful inaugural year in 2016, a NSF-MRSEC booth was again featured at the XXVI International Materials Research Congress (IMRC) in Cancun, Mexico on August 19-25, 2017 to increase awareness, promote international collaboration, and broaden participation from traditionally underrepresented groups in the National Science Foundation Materials Research Science and Engineering Center (NSF-MRSEC) program. Dr. William Kung (Northwestern University), Ms. Michelle McCombs (Ohio State University), and Ms. Kristen Dreyer (Pennsylvania State University) led the MRSEC booth and organized booth-related logistics across all 21 MRSECs. Annually, the IMRC is attended by approximately 1,800 attendees from more than 40 countries.
