Third Annual Soft Matter for All Symposium

An annual one-day virtual symposium to promote early-career researchers in Soft and Living Matter, with a focus on those from underrepresented groups. The symposium highlights the research of doctoral students and postdoctoral researchers, in addition to a keynote — each showcasing innovative and inspirational research across our field. A follow-on professional development workshop will give participants a chance to engage with a wide range of speakers representing academia, industry, and policy to help students and researchers navigate uncertainty across different career paths.

Hosted by three NSF MRSECs:
» UD’s Center for Hybrid, Active, & Responsive Materials
» Princeton’s Center for Complex Materials
» Penn’s Laboratory for Research on the Structure of Matter
