UCSB awarded $15 million by Dow to establish collaborative institute for materials research and education
Date:10/11/2011

eveloping our pipeline of future scientists and engineers," said Theresa Kotanchek, vice president of Sustainable Technologies and Innovation Sourcing at Dow. "Here we will have the opportunity to work side-by-side with the nation's top materials scientists and engineers in creating the next generation of nanomaterials and processes."

UCSB's MRL is engaged in research that could result in the development of new paradigms for energy-efficient microelectronics and the creation of adhesives and coatings inspired by marine bio-organisms. It also focuses on magnetic thermoelectronic nanomaterials, highly efficient heat conducting materials that could be used in the next generation of renewable energy technology.

"We are excited about the creation of our new Dow Materials Institute at UC Santa Barbara, under the visionary leadership of Professor Craig Hawker," said UCSB Chancellor Henry T. Yang. "We are honored by this significant investment in our campus by Dow Chemical. I extend my sincere congratulations and appreciation to Director Hawker and all of our contributing colleagues across the campus. UC Santa Barbara is top-ranked in the nation in the field of materials, and so this new institute will build on our existing strengths and our culture of interdisciplinary collaboration to advance the frontiers of research, enhance the educational opportunities for our students, and contribute to our society."

The recent five-year award also includes a philanthropic component consisting of a $2 million endowment that will provide ongoing funding to support the research of outstanding graduate students. "The Dow Discovery Fellowships are an enormous validation and boost for our doctoral program in chemical engineering," said Michael Doherty, chair of chemical engineering at UCSB. "They will enable our very best doctoral students to provide solutions to the most pressing engineering problems of our time."
