In celebration of Women's History Month in the US (March), the #seeHER movement features materials researcher Paula T. Hammond of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology for her work on nanomaterials in drug-delivery systems. For more details on this work, see the MRS-TV interview with Prof. Hammond about her Fred Kavli Distinguished Lecture given at the Plenary session during the 2018 MRS Fall Meeting.
What are SAMS?
Self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) are capable of changing the surface properties of a material and therefore relevant for many fields in science. The video shows a simple way to prepare them and also defines them and describes some of their applications.
The 2018 SciVid Competition is sponsored by the Materials Research Society Foundation, Goodfellow, and A. J. Drexel Nanomaterials Institute.

The 2018 MRS Fall Meeting iMatSci Innovation Showcase provides a platform for technology leaders at universities, research laboratories, and startup companies to demonstrate the practical applications of their innovative, materials-based technologies.
MRS tv spoke with John A. Rogers of Northwestern University about receiving the prestigious MRS Medal. Professor Rogers’ award citation reads "for pioneering contributions to materials for diverse classes of bio-integrated electronic systems". We asked Professor Rogers about his award talk, titled “Materials for Bio-Integrated Microsystems Technologies.” We asked about the talk’s focal points and the potential products that will come about as a result of his work.
MRS Government Affairs Committee David Norton of the University of Florida discusses his committee’s contributions to the development of governmental science and technology policy in materials-related areas.
