Institute for Molecular Science and Engineering
What we do
As part of the gowing worldwide molecular science and engineering community, IMSE has a perfect home at Imperial. The College's existing culture of collaboration and research translation means ground-breaking transdisciplinary research can be conducted in conjunction with external partners, for maximum societal benefits.
By encompassing molecular science within engineering design, we can tackle problems that are otherwise unsolveable.
Find out more about our MRes in Molecular Science and Engineering, which focuses on solving "real-life" problems by working closely with industry.

A greener plastic future
Our Affiliates look at the holistic integration of technology, design and policy for a greener plastic future.
We present an overview of the potential economic, technical and environmental benefits of additive manufacturing.
Our Affiliates are trying to understand how bacteria adapt to become resistant to antibiotics.
Carbon capture and utilisation
We report on the viability of different carbon capture and utilisation options for the UK.
Novel contact lens sensors
Contact lenses are being developed that that can monitor conditions and diseases in the eye.
