What is a Molecular Frontiers Symposium?
What is it like to take part in a Molecular Frontiers Symposium? Hear it from a number of participants, and speakers. (This is a longer version of the video linked at the top of this page.)
Why not come to one of our Molecular Frontiers Symposia, which bring together leading scientists who explain their ideas and most recent discoveries with molecules as the common theme. Open to the public and especially welcoming high school students, these annual events bring the most important current topics at the frontiers of molecular science to us all!
Even if you cannot be there in person, you can follow our events via live stream on our YouTube channel, MoleCluesTV. And if you scroll down, you can listen to most of the fantastic lectures we have had over the years, by world-leading scientists in a variety of fields!!
Our next symposium takes place Dec 5-6, and covers topics related to light-matter interaction, including quantum computing, super-resolution microscopy, nano optics, deep tissue imaging, and more. There will be ten exciting talks, and several Q&A sessions where you will be able to ask questions to the speakers. We will also announce the winners of the 2019 Molecular Frontiers Inquiry Prize!
The upcoming symposium will cover topics related to light-matter interaction, including quantum computing, super-resolution microscopy, nano optics, deep tissue imaging, and more.
Together we looked at the planet we live on, from various perspectives: the origin of Life, evolution, biodiversity, climate change and sustainability.
The first Molecular Frontiers symposium in the U.S. was hosted by MIT, with several local speakers
How do we change the world's energy production from fossil fuels to renewable sources?
In Tokyo, many students seized the opportunity to learn from the best, as the speakers not only gave inspiring talks but also engaged directly with the students in group work sessions!
Protein science has made its way into medicine, opening new exciting opportunities.
With modern technology, we can design, alter and assemble living systems. We invited a number of leading experts in this field - listen to their talks!
For the first time, a Molecular Frontiers Symposium was held in Japan.
As our life expectancy keeps increasing, research on ageing and how we can have a high quality of life at a high age becomes more and more important.
From soft robots to proteins and blue LEDs - this symposium had it all!
Our brain is a fantastic organ, with lots of interesting chemistry
This special event brough together the most famous collection of scientists ever to visit Korea at one time.
The symposium covered various fields of space research and space exploration, exploration and research of extreme environments on Earth and other planets, and how different living organisms cope and live in extreme environments.
Climate change, fuel, environment and sustainability - from a chemical perspective
Meet the science superheroes who enable amazing progress in biomedicine!
The 2010 Symposium at the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences covered topics such as photovoltaics, hydrogen production and solar concentration power.
