Molecular Machines Group: Program


A group of scientists, entrepreneurs, and institutional allies who cooperate to advance molecular machines, atomic precision, applications in energy, medicine, and material science, and long-term progress toward Richard Feynman’s vision of nanotechnology. Meetings are private and may be off the record. Those that are recorded can be found in our seminar summaries. Apply to join. Support to join.
