This week, we’re delighted to introduce you to more of the inspiring pioneers who will take the TEDMED Stage this fall. Together, we’ll explore how ordinary aspects of everyday life can have large impacts on our health – everything from the animals we live near and the spaces we live in; to the invisible sounds that we hear and the air that we breathe. We’ll rethink socially accepted childhood norms, and expose a controversial practice that impacts children around the world. We’ll also analyze the intersection of two rapidly merging fields: technology and biology. How are we programming synthetic organisms to fight human disease? What can we learn from the DNA of our ancestors and what is the correlation between that data and our health today?
Check out the 8 Speakers below and learn how their work is helping to reveal why ordinary aspects of our everyday lives can have big impacts on our health.
