    FORT BELVOIR, Va. - For the first time, DTRA CB/JSTO participated in the government speaker sessions at the recent Materials Research Society (MRS) meeting. The bi-annual conference is a large venue for the materials community to share cutting edge results and to develop collaborations. This past fall’s meeting gave officials a chance to explain the agency’s mission to more than 100 interested parties. The presentation, given by Viktoria Greanya, Ph.D., DTRA CB/JSTO’s senior manager for Nanomaterials Research, covered the DTRA CB/JSTO mission space, an overview of some currently existing nanomaterial investments, and good practices for interfacing with the agency and its science and technology managers. An extensive question and answer session followed with questions ranging from how to make connections on specific ideas to requirements and qualifications for contracts and grants.

    Several new ideas also emerged from the meeting, including thoughts on ultrahigh resolution imaging, novel materials-based wound decontamination, and magnetic nanoparticle-based therapeutics and contrast agents. MRS has also invited DTRA to participate in its Government Agency Leadership Summit on Feb. 22 to identify and bring government material needs to the community.
