Materials Research Society


We are a student run chapter of the Materials Research Society (MRS) open to anyone with an interest in materials at UC Davis. MRS is an organization of researchers from academia, industry, and government that promotes communication for the advancement of interdisciplinary materials research. By planning local events and attending national conferences, we hope to promote the agenda of MRS on our campus.
