Can't travel to a conference this summer? Let world-class speakers come to you!
Please join us on Wednesday, June 12 from 11 a.m.- 1 p.m. in 156 Cowley Hall to watch live broadcasts of TED talks from the TEDGlobal2013 event in Edinburgh, Scotland.
Each TED talk lasts less than 18 minutes, which makes for a fast-paced, exceptionally well-curated program. We will be watching Session 7: REGENERATION
, with the following presenters:
Molly Stevens, Biomaterials Researcher
Molly Stevens studies and creates new biomaterials that could be used to detect disease and repair bones and human tissue.
Siddharthan Chandran, Regenerative Neurologist
Can we repair the brain? Siddharthan Chandran explores how to heal damage from degenerative disorders such as MS and motor neuron disease.
Grégoire Courtine, Spinal Cord Researcher
Grégoire Courtine and his interdisciplinary lab imagine new ways to recover after devastating, mobility-impairing injury to the spinal cord.
Mark Kendall, Biomedical Engineer
Mark Kendall aims to shake up how vaccines are delivered with the Nanopatch.
Fabian Oefner, Photographer

Le Trio Joubran, Oud Trio
Drawing on threads stretching deeply into their musical ancestry, the brothers of Le Trio Joubran spin passionate oud music for the 21st century.
