Polymers and Soft Materials Research Initiative

Overview

The Polymers and Soft Materials (Poly-SM) Research Initiative is a collaborative effort to strengthen the multidisciplinary research on The University of Alabama campus in the field of polymers and soft materials. This includes investigations of fundamental chemical, mechanical, and biological materials and processes, as well as applied technologies of industrial significance. In order to stimulate research and innovation within the Poly-SM area, we provide financial support for invited seminar speakers, and we operate a shared experimental laboratory for soft material synthesis and characterization.
