Baylor scientists aim to design safer chemicals for humans, environment
from BioNews Texas
A four-university interdisciplinary team — the Molecular Design Research Network — will develop tools that help molecule designers predict toxic properties of new and existing chemicals, and modify their designs to reduce risks while maintaining their effectiveness. According to Bryan W. Brooks, Professor of environmental science and biomedical studies in Baylor University, one of the goals of this project is to leverage lessons learned from designing safer pharmaceuticals to identify attributes of industrial chemicals that could be designed to also be safer for public health and the environment.
