Meeting Agenda


The goal of the “Molecule Maker Lab Institute (MMLI) Dream and Visioning Workshop” is to learn from thought leaders in using AI for organic synthesis and catalyst design and draw out what grand challenges remain. Leveraging the experience and vision provided by the invited speakers, group discussions in breakout sessions will then focus on how MMLI researchers can work toward making dreams a reality.



Because Session 1 and Session 2 are on two separate days, participants need to register for Session 1 and Session 2 separately.

*Space is limited to 300 attendees.

The Breakout Session at the end of each day is targeted to the MMLI members and participation is by invitation only.
