Science-Art Exhibition at BioBAT Open for School Hours

BioBAT is pleased to announce our exhibition Spontaneous Emergence of Order that will be on view until March 15th, 2019. The work in this exhibit is a combination of scientific and artistic exploration into environmental concerns and human processes that addresses the interconnectedness of species. For all grade levels, it encourages further exploration into human placement as part of nature and not just observers of it.

The exhibit is open Monday through Friday until March 1st with visitation times of 10:30, 12:00 and 1:30. 

A limited number of curator-assisted visits are available on Fridays at 10:30 and 12:00.

Fun Science Camp

BioBAT’s workforce development is inspiring young minds through its exciting STEAM camp

Come join us and discover the fun of science through STEAM activities for students

BioBAT’s most recent Fun Science Camp was held on February 21st and was attended by South Brooklyn students from grades 1 through 9. The kids enjoyed learning about how science can be used to make works of art through chemistry experiments.

The next Fun Science Camp will take place in Summer of 2019.

Looking Ahead to a New Year of Expansion

BioBAT will be ringing in the New Year by starting construction on a new suite of state-of-the-art wet labs and attractive offices. The build-out is expected to be completed in 2018, so interested companies should reach out to us now. Turn-key labs are available for immediate occupancy until the new space is tenant-ready.

The new labs and offices will offer waterfront views, access to a well-stocked core facility, and ample room for further expansion. Our HVAC system is equipped to support fume hoods, clean rooms, and BSL-2 facilities. Regular ferry service to Manhattan, South Brooklyn, and Rockaway is available from the adjacent Sunset Park pier.

NK Architects, a leading science and technology architecture firm, has signed on to design the upcoming construction at BioBAT. The space was previously renovated and refurbished by HOK and building engineers Kallen & Lemelson.

We’d like to thank the professionals at NK Architects, HOK, and Kallen & Lemelson. We appreciate your continued work in making BioBAT a world-class R&D center for life science excellence.

We look forward to a fantastic 2018, and again wish all a Happy Holiday Season!

SUNY Downstate Medical Center’s commitment to research and education goes beyond the Downstate campus, including all the way to the Brooklyn harbor, where its venture BioBAT at the Brooklyn Army Terminal is working to strengthen the city’s scientific community.

Conquering the Need for Space in NYC’s Biotech Ecosystem

A biotech startup starts small, often at a single workbench. As the startup grows, its needs for laboratory and office space change.

Since every startup is different, their workspace needs are as well. What works for one emerging company might not work for another. There is no one space that fits every company, or even the same startup at different points in its lifecycle.
