Nebraska MRSEC Review
October 5, 2007

The Nebraska MRSEC review was held on October 5, 2007 at the Holiday Inn, Downtown Lincoln. The review was attended by the MRSEC Advisory Board members and included research presentations of IRG 1, IRG 2, and seed projects followed by a poster session. The Review provided a forum for stimulating discussions about the current and planned MRSEC research.
