Materials and Advanced Manufacturing

Materials are often the limiting factors when it comes to bringing an idea to life. For example, the search for biocompatible materials that are not rejected by the body has slowed progress toward the creation of artificial organ replacements. In addition, batteries and supercapacitors that can store enough energy at an affordable cost have limited the advancement of the energy agenda of the United States.

In 2014, the SUNY MAM network invested $710,000 in multidisciplinary research projects on biomaterials, flexible electronics, energy materials, additive manufacturing, and green composites. The recipients of these grants—researchers from across the SUNY university system—are joining forces to create state-of-the-art materials and advanced manufacturing processes that will help to usher in a new era of research breakthroughs in the medical, manufacturing, and energy arenas.
