Research and Outreach

The Materials Research and Education Center (MREC), established in 1993, consistently attracts national and international materials-related research projects. Confidence in Auburn University's MREC's research capabilities and expertise among faculty members keep the program on the cutting edge of research in many areas. Projects range in variety based on project sponsor and purpose. The center attracts and oversees more than $3 million in annual projects. The projects utilize the expertise among the materials engineering faculty, and when appropriate, the knowledge and experience available in various other Auburn University departments and colleges.

The MREC also sponsors a series of seminars each semester.

Current research centers on detection of Salmonella on Globe Fruit and using microfluidic chips to capture samples.
