NC State hosts Triangle Soft Matter Workshop
The 10th anniversary of the Triangle Soft Matter (TSM) Workshop was held on May 14, 2018, at the Dorothy & Roy Park Alumni Center on NC State University’s Centennial Campus.

This year, the honor was bestowed to NC State to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the TSM Workshop, which is now recognized as a testimony to the role of the Triangle universities in the soft matter research in the U.S. and the world.
