Maurice Morton Institute of Polymer Science
The Maurice Morton Institute of Polymer Science is concerned with basic and applied research in the College of Polymer Science and Polymer Engineering. It was established in 1956 as the Institute of Rubber Research and in 1964 became the interdisciplinary Institute of Polymer Science. The University's first Ph.D. program in polymer chemistry was started in 1956 and was administered by the Institute until a separate Department of Polymer Science as established in 1967. The institute maintains extensive laboratory facilities, an applied research group, a macromolecular modeling center, and a mini pilot plant for polymer synthesis. It is the principal organization responsible for external funding of research projects and graduate fellowships in polymer science.
