THE NEW MEXICO CONSORTIUM

The New Mexico Consortium (NMC) is non-profit corporation formed by three New Mexico universities in order to facilitate research in the state of New Mexico, and specifically to increase research collaborations between universities, industry and Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL).
The New Mexico Consortium is committed to the health and safety of our research and administrative staff. We continue normal operations working remotely and by adhering to Governor Lujan Grishman’s work restriction policies. For the latest coronavirus information, please monitor the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) webpage. Please contact us if needed by emailing info@newmexicoconsortium.org.
