The Gangopadhyay Research Group is a materials science research facility at the University of Missouri Columbia's College of Engineering dedicated to expanding the realm of science and technology through optimization of existing techniques and exploring new dimensions of knowledge. Our group will discover, integrate, and optimize new materials, processing methods, and characterization techniques. Endeavoring to promote innovative solutions to scientific challenges, we will build a unique 21 st century research facility and workforce promoting interdisciplinary research, training and education.
The group is headed by Prof. Shubhra Gangopadhyay who is a well acclaimed researcher in the field of Material Science and Physics. The group is currently setting up a high class research facility which will be a first of it's kind in Missouri.
