Top scientists and thought leaders at the intersection of biology, social science, art, and design frequently present at Genspace. Join us for these unforgettable conversations.

 
 

Genomics Lecture w/ CHRIS MASON: Designing genomes for Earth, Mars & beyond

AUGUST 24, 7pm-9pm

A key component of our new Brooklyn Barcoding Program is a Genomics Lecture Series, which is intended to introduce audiences to contemporary issues in genomic research. We are excited to welcome Chris Mason as the third lecturer in the series. The Mason lab is discovering and designing genomes for Earth, Mars, and beyond. 

 

Genomics Lecture: The Bioethics of Genetic Sequencing

September 7, 7pm-9pm

A key component of our new Brooklyn Barcoding Program is a Genomics Lecture Series, which is intended to introduce audiences to contemporary issues in genomic research. Kadija Ferryman and Sabrina Suckiel will present their research on the motivations and concerns of early adopters of whole genome sequencing tests. Examine the moral and ethical dilemmas surrounding whole exome/genome sequencing on ostensibly healthy individuals. 

 

BROOKLYN BARCODES: OPEN NIGHT

September 26, 7pm-9pm

Join Genspace for a relaxed night of hands-on science and discussion. Ever wonder if that fish sandwhich is really all fish, that goats cheese is really goat or what plant species that weed in your yard is? Come find out. BYOS (Bring Your Own Sample). Our open nights are connected to Genspace's Brooklyn DNA Barcoding Program- funded by the Richard Lounsbery Foundation.

 

Previous Events:

 

Biotech Futures Talk + Lab Series: Synthetic Biology

MARCH 16, 6:30pm

The Biotech Futures Series explores the implications of and ways in which biology is becoming a data science. Each talk is paired with a 3-4 hour lab workshop to demonstrate how these themes become realized in the lab.

 

Book Release: Designature: The Nature of Signatures in Art and Design

MARCH 31 - 7:00 PM TO 9:00 PM

Professor at University of Pennsylvania and leading biodesigner Orkan Telhan discusses his new book Designature, which explores the ways in which humans make their mark in the designed and natural world.

 

Genomics Lecture Series w/ Christine Marizzi

Genspace is proud to announce our Brooklyn Barcoding Program. A key component of our new Brooklyn Barcoding Program is a Genomics Lecture and Workshop series, which is intended to introduce audiences to contemporary issues in genomic research. We are excited to welcome Christine Marizzi as the first lecturer in the series.

 

The Future Will Be Grown: Student Projects from the Biodesign Challenge

Join us for the opening of THE FUTURE WILL BE GROWN, an exhibition of student projects from Biodesign Challenge 2017. Finalist teams from the twenty-two universities across the world converged at the Biodesign Challenge Summit at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York City on June 22rd + 23rd to showcase their projects and compete for the Glass Microbe. 

 

Frankenstein: Annotated for Scientists, Engineers, & Creators of All Kinds

Genspace is proud to welcome David Guston, editor of the newly published Frankenstein: Annotated for Scientists, Engineers, and Creators of All Kinds for a book signing event. In our era of synthetic biology, artificial intelligence, robotics, and climate engineering, this edition of Frankenstein resonates forcefully with readers.

 

Genomics Lecture Series w/ Karen Hogan

Genspace is proud to announce our Brooklyn Barcoding Program. A key component of our new Brooklyn Barcoding Program is a Genomics Lecture and Workshop series, which is intended to introduce audiences to contemporary issues in genomic research. We are excited to welcome Karen Hogan as the second lecturer in the series.

 

Second Saturdays: DNA Barcoding

Ever wonder if that fish sandwhich is really all fish, that goats cheese is really goat or what plant species that weed in your yard is? Come find out. Every second Saturday we will open up our lab for DNA Barcoding. Get hands-on lab experience and learn how to read the code of life. BYOS (Bring Your Own Sample). Second Saturdays are connected to Genspace's Brooklyn DNA Barcoding Program- funded by the Richard Lounsbery Foundation.
