A Peek at the Possibilities of Biodesign by Chau Tu.
"Last month, art and design students from across the country gathered in New York City to participate in the first-ever Biodesign Summit, the culmination of a semester-long challenge to conceptualize a biotech product for the future. The students took inspiration from the natural world, as well as advancements in technology, to design products that might one day improve our daily lives and ecosystems.
