Committee debates engineering plan
A faculty committee appointed by President Robert Zimmer and Provost Thomas Rosenbaum is currently drafting a report that will explore the possibility of creating a molecular engineering program at the University of Chicago.
Molecular engineering, which deals with the manufacture, manipulation, and study of molecules, has made important contributions to pharmaceutical research and materials science.
The field's resemblance to nanotechnology has led the committee to explore potential synergies with Argonne National Labs, which recently established a $72 million nanotechnology research center.
