We are excited to announce that our effort that started 2 years ago as the California Interfacial Science Initiative has received new funding through the UC MRPI program. With this $1.1M in direct funding we will extend the capacity and become the California Interfacial Science Institute. In the next 3 years we will continue our work on studying chemically-relevant interfaces by combination of theory and experiment and we now include additional leading researchers from UCLA and UC Santa Barbara. We also will establish a novel undergraduate research fellowship for conducting summer research in CISI affiliated laboratories.
