International Conference on Molecular Systems Engineering

From 27 – 29 August 2017, the NCCR Molecular Systems Engineering is organizing the first biennial International Conference on Molecular Systems Engineering (ICMSE) in Basel.

The ICMSE focuses on the emerging field of molecular systems engineering and will bring together world leaders in the characterization and engineering of complex chemical and biological systems. The three-day conference will highlight exciting strategies of assembling synthetic systems into molecular factories allowing the chemical modification and transport of molecular compounds, nanoreactors that convert energy and functional modules that work in complementary fashion to convey reactants along spatially designed reaction sequences. The conference will also focus on how these engineering approaches can be used for the development of cellular and medical diagnostics, for therapeutics, and for the control of cellular systems in health and disease.

Confirmed speakers include:

  • Stefan W. Hell, Max-Planck-Institute for Biophysical Chemistry, Göttingen, Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2014
  • Ben L. Feringa, University of Groningen, Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2016
  • Frances H. Arnold, California Institute of Technology, Pasadena
