The Brandeis Materials Research in Science and Engineering Center (MRSEC) funds research within Interdisciplinary Research Groups.

Highlights of IRG research are reported on an ongoing basis to the NSF MRSEC program.

Interdisciplinary Research Groups

Interdisciplinary Research Groups (IRGs) are composed of Brandeis faculty who, with their students and postdoctoral associates, investigate fundamental scientific questions and pathways to reach significant technological goals that can only be properly explored in a collaborative, multidisciplinary mode. These problems are too large in scope to be addressed by individual faculty members and their students. The research goals and accomplishments are reviewed regularly so that appropriate adjustments can be made to insure the quality of the Center's research effort.
