Molecular Frontiers is a non-profit organization involving many scientists and educators. Our scientific advisory board consists of 30 top scientists, among them 12 Nobel laureates. The goals of Molecular Frontiers are to:

- Raise the public appreciation of molecular science

- Connect eminent scientists around molecular matters of global significance

- Stimulate an interest in science in young people

Through our website your young people, MoleClues (, we aim to introduce a feeling of empowerment from a scientific understanding of the world – making sense through science.Throughout the site, the concept of molecules is manifested in our motto: “molecules are everywhere”.

We are obiously very interested in making an impression during IYC 2011.
