. -- The National Science Foundation (NSF) has awarded the University of Wisconsin-Madison Materials Research Science and Engineering Center (MRSEC)
nearly $14.8 million over the next six years to continue its research on the interfaces of materials at the nanoscale.
At the nano-scale, materials are so minute that scientists ofte......Full article >>>
ll design substrates, or surfaces, with a controlled chemistry and nanoscale topography. "They will use this ability, again, to control the growth and differentiation of stem cells something that nobody else has done and is very unique to our group," says de Pablo.
Another research group will study the interfaces between inorganic materials, such as traditional gallium-nitride semiconduc......Full article >>>

In fact, says de Pablo, a number of UW-Madison spin-off companies, including nPoint (whose founder is materials science and engineering professor Max Lagally), Platypus Technologies (whose co-founder is chemical and biological engineering professor Nicholas Abbott), Imago (whose founder is former materials science and engineering professor Tom Kelly), and Virent Energy......Full article >>>
higher degree that they want to get is not available in Puerto Rico for example, a PhD in materials science after they complete a master's degree, they can come to Wisconsin to get a PhD," he says.
Ultimately, says de Pablo, MRSEC provides a unique educational, research and technology-transfer setting in which the traditional boundaries of science disciplines are all but nonexistent. "W......Full article >>>
