Research Summary and Objectives

The Molecular Engineering Laboratory at MIT, led by Prof. Bernhardt L. Trout, develops and applies sophisticated computational, theoretical, and experimental methods in order to probe complex chemical systems on the molecular level and engineer them for high value chemical applications with maximum specificity. Applications are currently in the fields of continuous pharmaceutical manufacturing, stabilization and formulation of biopharmaceuticals, and nucleation and crystallization. In parallel, we develop new computational methods which are generally applicable for the engineering of complex chemical systems.

Research areas:

  • Continuous Pharmaceutical Manufacturing
  • Stabilization and Formulation of Biopharmaceuticals
  • Nucleation and Crystallization of Pharmaceuticals and Clathrate-Hydrates
  • Molecular Computational Methods for Reactive Processes in Complex Systems
