The MATTER Center (Maximizing Abilities Through Technology, Education and Research) is formed by an eclectic combination of faculty members in Engineering, Psychology, Nursing, and Rehabilitation from seven UC campuses. The Center covers a broad spectrum of research areas, under the common denominator of technologies to help persons with special needs in their activities of daily living. 

MATTER is supported by CITRIS (the Center for Information Technology Research in the Interest of Society) and QB3 (the California Institute for Quantitative Biosciences).
