Dean and Pritzker Director
The Doctoral Program in Molecular Engineering
The Pritzker School of Molecular Engineering attracts PhD students from a range of disciplines--materials science, physics, chemical and biological engineering, and more--to collaborate in problem-specific areas. Through training in fundamental principles across multiple fields, Pritzker Molecular Engineering (PME) provides the foundation critical for communicating, engaging, and leading across traditional boundaries.
At the center of PME is a growing team of world-class researchers from diverse science and engineering disciplines who take a hands-on approach to mentoring students and cultivating relationships with industrial and academic partners--resulting in exciting discoveries, new technologies, and innovative solutions.
The William Eckhardt Research Center includes cutting-edge clean rooms, molecular imaging facilities, biomolecular research labs, and a wet-lab for a nanofabrication facility and other materials work. In addition, the majority of PME faculty members have joint appointments at the Argonne National Laboratory and therefore have access to numerous superb facilities in areas including scattering, imaging, and computation.
