Professor Giulia Galli with graduate students.


Founded on the principle of collaborative problem-solving, PME encompasses a team of researchers, innovators, and administrators who each bring a specialized skill set, expertise, and perspective to our research and educational endeavors. 

We select our community purposefully, bringing together individuals committed to finding solutions to pressing world issues and to moving forward the fast-growing and emergent field of molecular engineering.
