I've been working on updating the links along the left wall. Mostly the academic ones, but others as well. On an academic timescale, polymers are a new area of study, so most of the research is done in "groups" or "institutes" or "centers/centres" - interdisciplinary efforts between multiple traditional departments. My alma mater, Illinois (Urbana) was like that. Phil Geil had organized a "Polymer Group" of profs from about 7 different departments.
The University of Akron is a counter example, having an entire college devoted to the subject.
Feel free to suggest anything that I'm missing. I'm not saying the list is complete by any means. At some point, it may need to move to a different page and be organized under different headings rather than just a big unworkable list.
