MoDRN (Molecular Design Research Network)


The world we live in is made of chemicals. The man-made substances have had revolutionary benefits on our lives as well as unintended consequences. MoDRN (Molecular Design Research Network) is a Green Chemistry and Green Engineering initiative, which focuses on the rational design of chemicals and materials to reduce toxicity.


Our engineers, chemists, toxicologists and biologists are working to develop a robust, accurate and intuitive set of tools to both inform chemical toxicity levels and help scientists design less hazardous alternatives. 


The overarching goal of MoDRN is to enable and empower the design, discovery and development of next generation chemicals that possess reduced toxicity. To accomplish this we facilitate engagement of scientists, educators, industry and regulatory bodies in this trans-disciplinary endeavor.
