2018 UC Mesoscale Materials Summer School

9-10 August 2018

This summer school at the University of California, Irvine brought together students, postdocs, and established experts in the field for two days of science seminars on self-assembly, characterization, and modeling of mesoscale materials, short courses on key characterization and measurement techniques, and career development activities for graduate students, postdocs, and early-career researchers.
