The Center for Iron and Steelmaking Research (CISR) is a University/Industry Cooperative Center within the department for Materials Science and Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University. The CISR is a University/Industry co-operative center devoted to education and research related to the production of iron and steel. CISR was established in 1985 with a grant from the National Science Foundation and eleven industrial members. The Center currently has 20 major industrial members and is the largest academic center for steelmaking research in the USA. The director of the CISR is Professor Richard J. Fruehan, Professor Sridhar Seetharaman is the associate director of the Center. Professor Alan W. Cramb is a contributing member of the Center. The center coordinator is Ms. Roxann Martin.
 
The CISR conducts research projects in ironmaking, steelmaking, clean steel, and casting. Typically the Center has about twelve projects at any given time. The projects are designed in conjunction with and approved by the industrial partners and typically last about three years.

CISR also has unique high temperature equipment. For example, confocal scanning laser microscopy, x-ray and x-ray fluoroscopy and double hot thermocouple microscopy which allows for visualization of phenomena at high temperatures.
