The MRS Medal recognizes an exceptional achievement in materials research in the past ten years. A medal will be awarded for a major advance or cluster of closely related advances in any materials-related field of research. The impact of this research on the progress of the relevant materials field will be a primary consideration in making the award.
MRS acknowledges the generosity of Dr. Gwo-Ching Wang and Dr. Toh-Ming Lu in endowing the MRS Medal.
The nomination site is open March 1 – May 3.
Each medal will consist of a $5,000 cash prize, an engraved and mounted medal and a citation certificate. The registration fee will be paid for the medalist to attend the MRS meeting at which the medal talk is presented, and reasonable travel expenses to the MRS meeting will be reimbursed.
