Virginia Tech has received the honor of hosting the 2021 National Graduate Research Polymer Conference (NGRPC2021), the only nationwide, graduate student-run, research symposium. For the last 25 years, it’s been a premier conference in highlighting the research and achievement of graduate students in polymer science. This is where leaders and innovators meet to share, inspire and network. We’re proud to host some of the most well-known and influential voices in the field and put a spotlight on the amazing research conducted at the graduate student level in polymer science and engineering.
