The vision of the University of Texas, Rio Grande (UTRGV)/University of Minnesota (UMN) Partnership for Research & Materials Education (PREM) is to develop human capital and infrastructure by bridging fundamental and engineering research on nanomaterials with innovation in the development of devices and systems for practical applications, while enhancing and strengthening representation of minority students in materials science careers.

The PREM consists of two main research thrusts comprised of investigators and junior researchers:

  • IRG-1: Prescribe, tailor, design and control the mesostructures of fine fibers
  • IRG-2: Nanostructured Fibers for Electronic, Transport, and Energy Applications
