The 2015 Polymers Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) and Gordon Research Conference (GRC) was recently held from June 14-19 at Mount Holyoke College in South Hadley, Massachusetts. This conference organized by Marc. A. Hillmyer (Chair) and Matthew L. Becker (Vice Chair) hosted an international community of participants who shared and discussed their most recent and innovative advances in polymer synthesis, assembly, characterization, and performance. The conference topics ranged from new methods for polymer synthesis to the application of novel polymers across technological arenas that positively impact society including energy, medicine, sustainability, and microelectronics. Meyer lab graduate student Michael Washington presented his latest research at the GRS and GRC while Tara Meyer presented the latest work of graduate student Jeff Auletta during the GRC.
