Graduate Research Progress Reports (GRPR)

The Graduate Students working in the Emulsion Polymers Institute write progress reports (GRPR) giving the details of their research programs twice a year. These reports are published in January and July each year and are ONLY available to members of the Institute's Industrial Liaison Program and not to the general public.
 The Table of Contents for the latest issue of our GRPR reports (GRPR 79, January 2013) is provided below to give an interested reader an idea of the research topics currently underway in the Institute.
