Apply to our Designing Molecular Machines Workshop, July 10 – 11 & nominate someone for the Feynman Prize in Nanotechnology!
Are you interested in driving progress on molecular machines? Here are two upcoming opportunities:
Apply to our Designing Molecular Machines Workshop
July 10 & 11 @ IndieBio in San Francisco.
The workshop is co-chaired by
William Shih, Harvard University
Adam Marblestone, Convergent Research, Astera Institute
Benjamin Reinhardt, PARPA
Many areas within the molecular machines field could be sped up via advancements on the software, modeling, and simulation-side. This two-day workshop invites a select group of specialists in software and simulation to apply their skills to help those tackling the challenges of constructing atomically-precise 3D structures, including pathways using chemistry, applied physics, biochemistry, molecular biology, and engineering.
Confirmed presenters include:
Anna Balazs, University of Pittsburgh
Erik Benson, Oxford University
Jonathan Blow, Number None
Alexis Courbet, University of Washington
Eric Drexler, University of Oxford
Yuanning Feng, Northwestern University
Niamh Gavin, Future Matter
Adam Marblestone, Astera Institute
Erik Poppleton, University Oxford
Stephane Redon, One Angstrom
Benjamin Reinhardt, PARPA
Will Shih, Harvard University
Jacob Swett, previous Arizona State University
Andrew Turberfield, University of Oxford
Bret Victor, Dynamic Land
Basile Wicky, University of Washington
Presentations on open challenges in the molecular machines field and relevant advances in software tools. Smaller groups form around selected topics to determine the work required to make progress. Project proposal sketches are generated, including scope of work, budget, relevant collaborators and timeline. Present funders may help in a mentorship role. Smaller workshops to hash out promising proposals may follow.
In addition to the main programming; mentorship hours, socials, and open breakout-spaces. In addition to benefiting from tech transfer across fields, and forming lasting collaborations with other leading scientists, entrepreneurs, and funders around shared goals, this workshop may unlock novel paths for long-term progress in the field.
You can find a full agenda and all participants on the workshop page.
If you are aware of outstanding work in Theory or Experimentation on the path to Molecular Nanotechnology, you can help award successes in the field, and the people creating them.
In addition to the senior Feynman Prizes, we also invite you to nominate a student to be awarded the Distinguished Student Award. The Foresight Institute Distinguished Student Award recognizes the College graduate or undergraduate student whose work is considered most notable in advancing the development and understanding of nanotechnology. The prize entails $1,000, an invitation to the award ceremony and technical workshop, and public acknowledgment and support.
Nominations are accepted via this form by July 31, 2022.
