Outcomes in Graduate Education: from Condensed Matter to Biological Physics



University of Chicago Materials Research and Engineering Center 

 The Materials Research Science and Engineering Center (MRSEC) at the University of Chicago incubates innovative research to produce the design principles for the next generation of materials. The research is focused on investigating materials formed far from equilibrium, exploring new paradigms for materials fabrication and response, and exploiting feedback between structure and dynamics. Senior investigators represent seven departments and five institutes at the University of Chicago, and two divisions at Argonne National Laboratory. 



The Institute for Complex Adaptive Matter (ICAM-I2CAM)

ICAM-I2CAM is a distributed experiment-based multi-institutional partnership whose purpose is to identify major new research themes in complex adaptive matter—the search for an understanding of emergent behavior in hard, soft, and living matter.
