Industry Partners

With eight current members, the MMLI is looking for additional partners to join the 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. We look forward to sharing tools and databases for more efficient synthesis and discovery of chemicals and materials for a wide range of applications. 

There is a two-tier membership structure with annual membership fees going into a seed grant fund that supports proof-of-concept projects and expands partnerships. Some benefits of joining the program include:

  • Invitation to the annual MMLI retreat to get a comprehensive overview of the MMLI research
  • Recruiting opportunities for graduate students and postdocs
  • Opportunity to sponsor directed research projects
  • Opportunities for licensing for┬áPartner-level┬ámembers
