Announcing the 2017-2018 Biomimicry Global Design Challenge, open to students and professionals worldwide.
The Biomimicry Institute empowers people to create nature-inspired solutions for a healthy planet.
The Biomimicry Global Network supports all our programs and works to spread biomimicry practice and education around the world.
Meet Alex Ralevski, a postdoctoral associate at Yale University who conducts translational research in plant biology and neuroscience. Her current work focuses on understanding fundamental biological mechanisms and their translation and practical application to animal and human biology. Alex is a contributing writer to AskNature.org, where she helps curate content on biological strategies and the ideas they’ve inspired. To learn more about Alex’s research, check out this video where she explains how plants that thrive in salty seawater can teach us how to design better ways of providing fresh drinking water in drought-prone areas.
