Macromolecular Research Centre

Macromolecular Research Center

Autonomous within Rani Durgawati University Setup, Jabalpur, (M.P.), India


MRC was established in 1988 by Late Shri Prof. S. K. Nema, who has been a pioneer worker in the field of macromolecules. He had many achievements in his name. He had been the head of polymer dib\vision ISRO. Thereafter he established MRC. He completed project over 7 crore of rupees from various funding agencies.

Present Director

Prof. Jag Mohan Keller is the present acting director of MRC. He is also one of the pioneer worker in the field of polymer science. He has been a great scientist and teacher.
