Robotic Lab Assistant

Work with the iDMT

The iDMT is a research hub and SME incubator, based at the University of Cambridge, that accelerates access to pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals, functional molecules and molecular materials through machine learning and robotics-based synthesis.

iDMT Facilities

The iDMT hosts both experimental and computational facilities in newly renovated laboratory and office workspaces. For SME partners, iDMT covers agreed consumables budget, access to resources within iDMT and the time of iDMT staff. SMEs only cover the costs of their personnel, travel, exotic reagents and equipment they may wish to test.
