Researchers in the MU Materials Science & Engineering Institute (MUMSEI) develop new and improved materials with specific properties that can advance solutions around sustainability, energy storage, precision health care and more. We foster collaboration in existing and new areas such as biomaterials, energy, materials, quantum materials and materials-at-extremes. We welcome researchers from across campus and our community to join us to discover new possibilities.
Our facilities are open to researchers and industry professionals. Reserve our microfabrication equipment, including the atomic layer deposition system, electron microscope, thin film and other characterization equipment. Materials Fabrication equipment is available in a 1,000-square-foot, Class 100 Clean Room. Mechanical, electrical, thermal and structural materials characterization equipment is available in an adjacent 2,000-square-foot facility.View Facilities Reserve Equipment
NSF Research Traineeship Program to Prepare Materials and Data Scientists
A five-year, $3 million grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) is establishing a doctoral training program at the University of Missouri to help prepare the next generation of scientists and engineers to work in the emerging fields of materials science and data science and analytics.
A new view of microscopic processes
With the support of a two-year, $800,000 grant from the National Science Foundation and an additional $300,000 from the university, Matt Maschmann and a team of researchers at MU are purchasing new equipment from Protochips which will allow researchers to conduct scientific experiments while simultaneously viewing reactions as they happen in real time.
