Accelerating Molecular Engineering through Modern Infrastructure
The Molecular Engineering & Sciences Building accommodates sophisticated molecular-scale engineering research – its location and design minimize vibration and electromagnetic interference that could otherwise impact sensitive equipment and experiments. Located at the heart of UW’s campus, the MolES building is ideally situated to catalyze cross-departmental research and educational collaborations, which are essential to advancing an interdisciplinary field like molecular engineering.
The open layout of MolES lab and office spaces promotes interaction among scientists, creating a fertile environment for new ideas and collaborations. The upper floors of the building were designed to be easily reconfigured to accommodate an evolving research landscape. The ground floor is home to the Molecular Analysis Facility (MAF), an advanced characterization facility available to scientists and engineers at UW, outside academic institutions, and industry.
