The Glenn H. Brown Liquid Crystal Institute (LCI) was founded in 1965 by Glenn H. Brown, a chemistry professor at Kent State University.  The birthplace of liquid crystal displays, the LCI is the world first research center focused on the basic and applied science of liquid crystals. In September 2018, LCI has been renamed to the Advanced Materials and Liquid Crystal Institute (AMLCI) with a view to expanding the research frontier in material sciences beyond the boundary of liquid crystals. We believe the institute with the new name will thrive and flourish through its next 50 years.
