Beyond the Lab

Beyond the Lab spotlights activities that take basic materials research from the laboratory to the real world. It includes educational outreach, career profiles and opportunities beyond the laboratory.

Beyond the Lab features are available in our print edition of MRS Bulletin and for free via the online version of the MRS Bulletin. You do not have to be a subscriber to MRS Bulletin to access this content—it is freely available to anyone with Internet access.

The reviewers for Beyond the Lab particularly welcome volunteers who have a flair for journalism to contribute articles. To find out more about how to be a contributor, email, with the subject head as Beyond the Lab: Inquiry.
