Welcome to the Soft Materials website!
Here at Brandeis University, we conduct innovative soft materials research at the intersection of the physical and life sciences. This multidisciplinary experience is a collaboration between the Soft Materials Program, the NIH-funded Quantitative Biology (QB) Training Program, and the NSF-funded Material Research Science and Engineering Center (MRSEC). Graduate students can engage with soft materials research by taking courses within the Soft Materials Program and then joining research laboratories supported by the MRSEC. Our Soft Materials-affiliated students are being trained to create the next generation of materials that can revolutionize our world.
