Our Mission

The UDSMART Center brings together scientists and engineers with interests in supramolecular science. This field is broad and encompasses many aspects of science and engineering with the goal of taking ideas from the bench top to application. The purpose of the center is not to direct any individual ideas but rather to present a platform to allow faculty to take their ideas to areas they may have never considered. The collaborative research of faculty gives undergraduate and graduate students the unique opportunity to develop, not only skills in their chosen field, but to learn how their skills can be applied to other areas to answer the big questions. In the process the center will strengthen interactions between faculty and students across disciplines and will increase the visibility of the work going on at UD.
