A multidisciplinary group of specialists in healthspan and longevity research will collaborate with those tackling the challenges of atomically-precise 3D structures and molecular machines, including construction pathways using chemistry, applied physics, biochemistry, molecular biology, and engineering.

Areas to be addressed include furthering the human healthspan via the 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.
