Tour the Joint Institute for Advanced Materials on Monday Feb. 13 with USGBC Tennessee's East Branch and the AIA East Tennessee Explorer Post 901, a group of high school students interested in architecture and design.
About the Joint Institute for Advanced Materials
Established in 2005, the Joint Institute for Advanced Materials (JIAM), which comprises a multidisciplinary team of scientists from The University of Tennessee, Knoxville (UT) and Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), operates at the forefront of modern materials science.
Through a partnership that spans more than 60 years, UT and ORNL researchers have maintained international prominence in the field of advanced materials synthesis and characterization. This broad research realm directly engages physicists, chemists, microscopists, computer scientists, and engineers, while involving myriad other areas of scientific investigation.
JIAM's new 140,000-square-foot research facility represents one of the world's premier centers for advanced materials research.
We will meet at the main entrance (south of the building right off the parking lot) at 6 p.m.
