    UW to gain nation's first facility dedicated to molecular engineering

    University of Washington leaders broke ground Oct. 9, 2009 on the site of what will be the nation's first facility dedicated to molecular engineering. The $78 million UW molecular engineering building will consist of a 28,000-square-foot basement laboratory designed to protect against vibrations and electromagnetic interference. The lab will be the largest facility of its type on the West Coast.

    "Molecular engineering is going to be right in the middle of a lot of the big societal problems -- energy, health care, communications," said Matthew O'Donnell, Frank & Julie Jungers Dean of the College of Engineering. "I think it's going to be as central to new technologies in this century as mechanical, electrical, chemical and materials engineering were to technologies developed in the last century."

    The molecular engineering building will be ready for occupancy in 2012.
