The Bio-Art Mixer is a lecture and socializing event, existing since 2017, where art and life sciences meet, where faculty and graduate students are invited to share their research, get ideas for their new projects, or simply view their own work from the perspective of a different discipline. At every meeting, we have two to four short presentations, followed by a moderated discussion and a Q&A with the audience. After that, we allow time for informal conversations. The event became popular very quickly and the audience increased beyond 150 visitors at a time. The mixers involve presenters among faculty and graduate students from local universities in Syracuse; and guests from national and international institutions such as Windsor University, Canada; University of Western Australia, Perth; Ionian University, Greece; The Ohio State University; Cornell University; Carnegie Mellon University; School of Visual Arts; University of Connecticut; Alfred University; University at Buffalo; Rensselaer; SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry; SUNY Upstate Medical University etc.
