AFRL, National Science Foundation, academia converge in Miami Valley to accelerate materials discovery to deployment

Dr. Tod Grusenmeyer, a research chemist in the Air Force Research Laboratory, or AFRL’s, Materials and Manufacturing Directorate, shares his research team’s plans to accelerate the transition of new materials from design to deployment in support of the nation’s warfighters over the next four years at the National Science Foundation’s Designing Materials to Revolutionize Our Future, or DMREF, and AFRL 2023 kickoff meeting at the Wright Brothers Institute in downtown Dayton, Ohio, Dec. 7, 2023. Grusenmeyer, who coordinated crucial event logistics ahead of the kickoff meeting in Dayton, currently serves on an AFRL team that is contributing to warfighting efforts via the NSF DMREF program “Data-Driven Prediction of Hybrid Organic-Inorganic Structures.” The research project team, which features academic contributors from the University of Colorado-Boulder, Duke University and New Mexico Highlands University, is working to develop and leverage a new automation capability to accelerate new material discovery.
