Our mission is to rigorously understand life’s design principles and re-engineer them to revolutionize our approach to addressing critical challenges in human health and the environment.
To accomplish this, the BDC fosters unconventional mixing and matching of disparate research areas within a highly collaborative and team-driven environment to create disruptive ideas and technologies. We aim to become a new and recognized home for design and innovation in biology, the first of its kind. We draw in scientists from industry and academia alike to tinker, invent, and discover under the Center’s auspices. The BDC will accelerate the transformation of this field by providing international leadership through pioneering research, new models for industry-academic partnerships, and reshaping education and training of the next generation of scientists.
