Polymer Day 2022 took place at MIT's campus on April 20th. We had nearly 200 attendees and 38 posters from students and postdocs from universities around the Northeast. The day included a poster session and career fair in the morning followed by an alumni panel and research talks in the afternoon.
The winners of the poster competition were:
