Workshop Details
Molecular Rotors, Motors, and Switches
07/12/2022 - 07/16/2022
Meeting Description:

The control of dynamic systems at the molecular level and the design of molecular motors, rotors, and switches are highly timely and essential for the development of complex functional molecular systems. Fundamental understanding of these phenomena forms the basis for the design of nanosystems, responsive materials, and ultimately, nanomachines.


Thirty-two leaders in the field will present invited lectures and there will be ample time for discussions.


The registration fee includes five breakfasts, a BBQ picnic on Wednesday night, and an unlimited amount of coffee and snacks.

TSRC is about expanding the frontiers of science, exploring new ideas, and building collaborations. The workshop schedule will allow for substantial unstructured time for participants to talk and think. All participants are expected to stay for the entire duration of the workshop. Scientists are encouraged to consider bringing family or friends. Telluride offers a number of options for children's camps (including Telluride Academy, Ah Haa School for the Arts, and Pinhead Institute). There is more information on childcare, camps, and family activities on TSRC's website at Please contact Cindy Fusting at for more information.
