We engage in world-class, multi-disciplinary, collaborative scientific research that elucidates the fundamental principles of macromolecular science, especially emerging fields such as photonics, biomaterials, and nanotechnology. We educate, first and foremost, graduate students, assisting them to cultivate a life of the mind, from which to think critically, investigate the world with the tools of research, communicate effectively, and creatively translate knowledge into new technologies and policies. We disseminate knowledge, not only through teaching of students, but also through scholarly publication, public scientific discussion, and outreach activities to the scientific community and the world.
