dhesives and coatings inspired by marine bio- organisms. A third research focus is on magnetic and thermoelectric nanomaterials, or highly efficient heat conducting materials that could be used in the next generation of renewable energy technology.

"UCSB has become a model for other universities, especially in the Materials arena, in its dissolution of barriers between departments in a manner that encourages collaboration," says Professor Ram Seshadri, Associate Director of the MRL. "We have systematically created an environment where interdisciplinary research is intentional and encouraged. The MRL has always supported this vision through shared central facilities and infrastructure, and by valuing shared success."

In partnering with over 750 internal and external users last year including students, researchers, and industry collaborators MRL facilities provided state-of-the-art technological instruments that advanced research in chemistry, physics, and materials science and engineering.

The MRL also significantly impacts K-12 and undergraduate education through innovative programs aimed at students, teachers, and junior researchers that have served as models both nationally and internationally. Teacher training programs housed at the MRL prepare educators to teach about science and engineering, fostering curriculum design delivered to local classrooms.

Since it first opened its doors 20 years ago, the MRL has become the seeding grounds for several other successful research centers and programs on the UCSB campus. The unique environment of the MRL has created and sustained numerous start-up companies throughout the Central Coast region. Employers in high-technology chemical, electronics, and medical industries from start-ups to large corporations find a valuable resource and partner in the Materials Research Laboratory.

"We are very proud that our Materials Research Laboratory has become known around the
