    Dear Colleagues in the Division of Soft Matter,
    I would like to take advantage of this wonderful forum to introduce our Center for Soft Matter and Biological Physics at Virginia Tech! This interdisciplinary research Center was established in February 2016, and is administered by the Department of Physics in our College of Science. Its mission is to advance the rapidly growing research areas of soft matter and biological physics. It is largely funded through overhead returns from our grants.
    We strive to run a bottom-up research- and curiosity-driven enterprise, providing opportunities across campus for ample discussions spanning various disciplines, and facilitating the pursuit of engaging interdisciplinary research. Presently, 34 faculty from a variety of departments in Virginia Tech's Colleges of Science and Engineering are active Center members, along with our graduate and undergraduate students and postdoctoral research associates.
    Please peruse our webpages at for additional details.
    I wish you all a happy, healthy, and productive 2021!
