NYU Receives $7.2 Million NSF Grant for Center to Develop New Materials by Exploring & Controlling the Assembly of Designer Particles

New York University has received a $7.2 million, six-year grant from the National Science Foundation to create a Materials Research Science and Engineering Center (MRSEC), where NYU scientists will develop new materials through the exploration and manipulation of molecular particles. This grant was awarded based on a proposal spearheaded by faculty in the recently created Molecular Design Institute in NYU Chemistry and Center for Soft Matter Research in NYU Physics.

NYU’s center is one of 31 MRSECs in the country. These NSF-backed centers employ interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary materials research to address fundamental problems in science and engineering. For more, go to http://www.mrsec.org/.

The NYU MRSEC unites NYU’s departments of chemistry and physics, its Courant Institu 500
