Integrated Molecular Machines Workshop Applications

The first round of applications for the highly interactive workshop, “Integrated Molecular Machines: From Materials to Nanosystems,” close on February 28.

Dates: May 5-6, 2018
Location: Washington University, St. Louis, Missouri 

Honorary Chair:
Sir Fraser Stoddart, Board of Trustees Professor of Chemistry, Northwestern University

Workshop Chair: 
Prof. Jonathan Barnes, Department of Chemistry Washington University in St. Louis

We are thrilled to have 2016 Nobel Laureate Sir Fraser Stoddart, Northwestern University, as Honorary Chair and Prof. Jonathan Barnes, Washington University, as Workshop Chair for our spring research meeting.

The meeting includes a complimentary invitation to the Feynman Prize Award Ceremony on the evening of May 5.

While Foresight workshops have historically been invite-only, we're grateful to be able to open up the meeting to a small number of applications in the following fields: atomically-precise 3D structures and molecular machines, including construction pathways using chemistry, applied physics, biochemistry, molecular biology, and engineering; design and construction of complex structures and molecular machines built via organic and inorganic synthesis; objects and devices constructed from DNA, RNA, proteins, or biomimetic polymers; construction via scanning probe; and other approaches to building with increasing precision from the bottom up, including applying artificial intelligence to design and construction challenges.
