Biodesign Challenge Summit 2019

On June 20 and 21, Parsons School of Design and the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) will host the Biodesign Challenge Summit—an event that brings together finalist teams with leading voices in art, design, and biology.

This year’s Summit will feature 36 finalist teams from 9 countries that will come together to present projects and compete for prizes in front of 50 esteemed judges from across academia, the arts, and industry and over 400 audience members. The summit is an education-based competition that partners students with artists, designers, and biologists to envision future applications of biotechnology. Over the course of two days, finalist teams showcase projects to compete for prizes, including the coveted Glass Microbe. Teams were chosen from over 500 students from nine countries who worked throughout the academic year to develop their visions for the future of biotech.

An opening reception and exhibition, LIFE IN REPLY, will be held in the Parsons Making Center on the evening of June 20 (7 pm – 9 pm).
