On April 12th, 2019, Emily Cole, VP of R&D, participated at The University of Texas at Austin’s annual Undergraduate Research Forum. Emily served as a panel judge for their new Inventors Program showcase, an inaugural “Shark Tank”-style session where student teams pitch their innovations to a panel of local experts. The Inventors Program partners with local public and private sector organizations – including the new Army Futures Command. A UT alumna, Emily regularly participates in outreach events at the university. MRD employees routinely engage with the community of Austin in various capacities & we are proud to support them.
