Pioneering Interdisciplinary Team at Rutgers Tackles Sustainable Materials

Posted: April 14, 2010

Led by SAS Area Dean Kathryn Uhrich, a broad-reaching team of Rutgers scientists and engineers are seeking to make a difference in the area of renewable materials.  Directed initially at bio-based and bio-compatible polymers, the group of approximately 30 researchers will seek to discover, develop, characterize, and ultimately commercialize broad classes of new sustainable materials to improve the environmental and ecological footprint of the large materials industry.
