From UW TV: 2012 Engineering Lecture Series: Engineering Molecules: Tiny Solutions for Big Problems
The 2012 Engineering Lecture Series took a close look at how engineers are using small molecules to solve big problems. The emerging field of molecular engineering builds from the bottom up and aims high, promising new ways to diagnose disease earlier and treat it more precisely, and inexpensive and practical ways to harness clean sources of energy. Attendees learned how the UW’s new Molecular Engineering and Sciences Institute is aiding these efforts by bringing together researchers from diverse disciplines in a collaborative working environment.
