Exploring the Boundaries: the Science of the ExtremesMolecular Frontiers Symposium
May 28-29, 2013
Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, Stockholm, SwedenHuman exploration is discovering more extreme and inhospitable environments on Earth, other planets and in space. These discoveries are challenging our current knowledge in science and technology, but are also stirring our imagination.
During this symposium we will navigate different extreme environments on Earth, explore the life that not only survives but thrives in these conditions, and discuss possibilities for human exploration and conquest of extreme environments on this, and other planets.
The goal is to present and discuss broadly the current view and the future challenges of Life and Exploration in Extreme Environments, in order to engage the scientists, students, children and the general public in one of the most fascinating topics, and thus promote the relevance of science and scientific education in all layers of the society.

May 29-30, 2012 Molecular Frontiers Symposium, Stockholm
The Molecular Frontiers Symposium at The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences in Stockholm, May 29-30, 2012, will be titled "How chemical cycles shape our planet: the global challenge"
Topics that were covered include:
- Climate questions
- Fuel, environment and chemistry
- Global questions: sustainability - trends and necessary action
The Symposium was moderated by Richard Zare, Stanford, President of Molecular Frontiers.
April 21-22, Molecular Frontiers Symposium, Singapore
The symposium will highlight emerging molecular technologies of importance to molecular medicine and biology, including hyperpolarizable NMR, super-resolution imaging, fluorescent probes for RNA, optical methods to activate selected proteins in cells, miniaturized lab on chip, and bioluminescence as a tool for studying transport in animals, and minimal synthetic genome systems.
