Specialists in target applications 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 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.

Participants will be specifically selected to participate due to your unique perspectives on these technologies arising from your research. 

Foresight Institute, which administers the Feynman Prizes in Nanotechnology, is handling logistics. Foresight is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to advancing beneficial transformative technologies with ties in industry, academia, and government.
