MSRDC members are more than just research institutions - they are game changers.

The MSI STEM Research & Development Consortium (MSRDC) serves as a strategic asset, solutions provider and research development partner to more than 60 minority-serving research institutions, federal partners, and private industry collaborators. Our members use a combination of basic, applied, and/or advanced technology development research to pioneer groundbreaking solutions that drive innovation forward.
