X Development (formerly Google X) Seminar | Secrets of Moonshots


Presented by the UC San Diego Center for Microbiome Innovation and hosted by Dr. Jack Gilbert, this special seminar will feature Dr. Raj B Apte, the Principal Engineer of New Projects from X, the moonshot factory as he divulges the “Secrets of Moonshots.”

This event will be followed by a reception with bar and appetizers.

X Development (formerly Google X) is an American semi-secret research and development facility and organization founded by Google in January 2010, which now operates as a subsidiary of Alphabet Inc. X has its headquarters about a mile and a half from Alphabet’s corporate headquarters, the Googleplex, in Mountain View, California.

X’s mission is to invent and launch “moonshot” technologies that aim to make the world a radically better place. A moonshot is defined by X as the intersection of a big problem, a radical solution, and breakthrough technology.
