Artificial Molecular Machines

Project description

Nature and nurture are inspiring a new generation of molecular machinists

Machines use mechanical forces and moving components to perform functional tasks. From wheels and axles to levers and pulleys to the energy-converting machines of the Industrial Revolution, human-made machines have shaped our development. More recently, machines have been down-sized – a lot – with inspiration from nature. All motion in living organisms comes from biological molecular machines. Now, scientists are developing artificial molecular machines for engineering and medical applications. ArtMoMa plans to put the wheels in motion for facilitating European leadership in the promising area of artificial molecular machines. Young researchers mentored by world-class scientists in academia and industry are working together to establish a lasting educational structure to translate fundamental research into numerous applications.
