Meeting 2022 TMS Annual Meeting & Exhibition
Symposium Moving Forward from a Pandemic: How the Field of Materials Science Has Adapted (2022 Student-led Symposium)
Presentation Title Materials Science during a Pandemic: A National Lab Perspective
Author(s) Ellen K. Cerreta
On-Site Speaker (Planned) Ellen K. Cerreta
Abstract Scope After the 2020 TMS Annual Meeting, there was a recognition of a global pandemic – COVID-19. In the following weeks, we had to adjust to the effects of the virus and safety protocols implemented, as a result. This presented countless challenges. In this talk, I will discuss those that were specific to the materials community and how, from a national laboratory perspective, we attempted to navigate those challenges. I will speak to the role a national laboratory can play in a public emergency and give specific examples of work that came to Los Alamos in the months following the realization of this global crisis. Following that, I will discuss the way TMS navigated these challenges and continued to meet the needs of materials professionals. Finally, I will conclude with how I believe lessons from the pandemic will inform how the materials profession does their work in the future.
