ABOUT THE INSTITUTE

The Molecule Maker Lab Institute (MMLI) is an interdisciplinary initiative with leaders in AI and organic synthesis intensively collaborating to create frontier AI tools, dynamic open access databases, and fast and broadly accessible small molecule manufacturing and discovery platforms. Advanced AI and machine learning (ML) methods enable the MMLI to achieve AI-enabled synthesis planning, catalyst development, molecule manufacturing, and molecule discovery.

BECOME AN INDUSTRY PARTNER

Join the MMLI Industrial Partnership Program! The goal of this program is to provide the opportunity for a two-way exchange of information between the MMLI and industry researchers. Benefits include close collaboration with MMLI trainees, opportunities to give feedback on unpublished work, and more. We look forward to sharing tools and databases for more efficient synthesis and discovery of chemicals and materials for a wide range of applications.

How To Join

EDUCATION SPOTLIGHT

Are you a high school teacher or student? Join us for Molecule Maker Camp at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign summer 2023! Build “MEGA-molecules” with super-sized LEGO kits, 3D print space-filling models of the polythiophenes you design, perform molecular role-playing skits, and attend expert talks that break down the concepts of human-centered molecular design, synthesis, and testing in a fun, accessible way.
