Twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, materials scientists and researchers from around the world are working on projects that have the potential to change the way we live. You and your colleagues work in a wide variety of settings and are interested in the total spectrum of materials-related issues and applications. Yet in many ways, your goals and challenges are much the same. To seek information. To collaborate with one another on ground-breaking techniques. To earn the respect of your peers. And to reach out to your communities.
To help you reach these goals, one society stands out from the rest—the Materials Research Society. Founded in 1973 to promote interdisciplinary goal-oriented basic research on materials of technological importance, the society is now over 12,000 members strong—and includes regular, student, retired and unemployed membership options.
