MRSEC Seed Symposium: Minneapolis, MN — Jan 18, 2017

On January 18, 2017, the University of Minnesota MRSEC hosted its inagugural Seed Symposium. The MRSEC Seed program is designed to foster innovation and promote Center growth and evolution. An exciting line-up of speakers from five University of Minnesota departments, all of whom hold Seed awards, provided a half-day symposium and an opportunity to increase awareness of each other's work. MRSEC faculty, students, and postdocs came together to listen, question, and understand Seed research, and to offer multidisciplinary approaches to Seed researchers. The Symposium strengthened possibilities for future IRG/Seed collaborations.
