About this collection

This collection features work that showcases molecular engineering approaches from leading scientists in the earlier stages of their independent research careers. The 2020 Molecular Systems Design & Engineering Emerging Investigators were individually nominated by members of the journal Editorial and Advisory Boards and previous Emerging Investigators in recognition of their potential to influence future directions in the field.

Accompanying this collection is the Emerging Investigators special issue, in which these articles will be formally published. This issue is scheduled for early 2020.
