GREENWICH, Conn. — A woman who has been called "one of the most exciting young scientists in the field” will give a presentation Tuesday, Sept. 13, at the Bruce Museum in Greenwich on “Synthetic Biology: Designing Living Things.”

The program begins at 6:30 p.m. with a reception and light refreshments, followed by the lecture from 7 to 8 p.m. from Dr. Christina Agapakis, creative director at Ginkgo Bioworks.

She will give an introduction to the science and the art of synthetic biology, in particular its applications in food, fermentation, and fragrance.

“Biology is the best manufacturing platform on the planet, a self-assembling and self-renewing method for building incredible molecules and materials,” Agapakis says. “As we better learn to design with biology, our technologies may become more biological, offering creative opportunities to rethink how we make everything.”

This event is free and open to the public. Register at info@brucemuseum.org or 203-413-6757.

The program is held to complement the current Bruce Museum exhibition "Science In Motion: The Photographic Studies of Eadweard Muybridge, Harold Edgerton and Berenice Abbott."

The Bruce Museum is located at 1 Museum Drive in Greenwich, CT. For more information, call 203-869-0376 or visit brucemuseum.org .
