Polymers in Academia

This is an incomplete list of units in an academic setting that specialize in polymer research. However, there is still a tremendous amount of polymer and rheologic research that is done outside these units. The quality of the research and education is not inherently better in either sitaution. I would like to eventually added these individual professors as well but that would be a rather daunting task to start and even more so to keep updated.
