The Materials Research Society (MRS) a nonprofit professional membership society, was established in 1973 by a visionary group of scientists who shared the belief that their professional interests were broader in scope than existing single-discipline societies and that a new interdisciplinary organization was needed. Today MRS is a growing, vibrant member-driven organization of over 16,000 materials researchers from academia, industry, and government, and a recognized leader in the advancement of interdisciplinary materials research. Headquartered in Warrendale, PA, MRS membership now spans over 80 countries.
MRS members hail from physics, chemistry, biology, mathematics and engineering —and they choose MRS because it is important to their work and their careers. In MRS they find an environment for collaboration and open exchange of ideas across all scientific disciplines… where students and Nobel Laureates come together to share their research…where multilateral projects are a global enterprise… and where the ultimate goal is to advance materials that improve the quality of life.
