Yale NSF-Funded Workshop on Molecular Design

Wednesday, May 1, 2013

The Center for Green Chemistry & Green Engineering at Yale will be hosting an NSF-sponsored workshop in June on Molecular Design of Commercial Chemicals for Minimal Unintended Biological Activity.  

The workshop will focus on identifying the scientific advances that are needed for development of practical computational tools and teachable design guidelines based on molecular properties.  

The ultimate goal is to facilitate consideration of toxicological hazard as a routine design criterion for new molecules.  The results of the workshop will be made public in late summer.
