Planet Earth: A Scientific Journey
Together we looked at the planet we live on, from various perspectives: the origin of Life, evolution, biodiversity, climate change and sustainability.
Molecular Puzzles of Life
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?
Science for Tomorrow
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!
Proteins in Medicine
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!
Molecules and Our Healthy Life
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.
Frontiers of Molecular Sciences
From soft robots to proteins and blue LEDs - this symposium had it all!
The Brain: Achievements and Challenges
Our brain is a fantastic organ, with lots of interesting chemistry
What are the molecular frontiers of tomorrow: the science for you to solve
This special event brough together the most famous collection of scientists ever to visit Korea at one time.
Exploring the Boundaries – the Science of the Extremes
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.
How chemical cycles shape our planet: the global challenge
Climate change, fuel, environment and sustainability - from a chemical perspective
Emerging Technologies in Biomedicine
Meet the science superheroes who enable amazing progress in biomedicine!
Alternative Energy & Molecules
The 2010 Symposium at the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences covered topics such as photovoltaics, hydrogen production and solar concentration power.
Of Molecules and Minds – The Machinery of Our Senses and Emotions
The first Molecular Frontiers Symposium to deal with the brain - how does the mind and our senses work, from a molecular perspective?
