MRS Statement on the Situation in Ukraine

March 1, 2022
The Materials Research Society is concerned and saddened about recent, and recurring, events where scientists, and the public at large, are disrupted by violence and political unrest. The Materials Research Society is dedicated to promoting diversity, equity and inclusivity. We believe that all scientists, and all people, should be able to live their lives and pursue their livelihood inside safe environments. Furthermore, we believe that it is vital to allow scientists to conduct their critical work and research outside of changing political climates, civil unrest or any other factors that may inhibit the abilities of researchers to continue to make their valued contributions to improving everyday life for the public at large.
