With over 1,000 TED Talks, it’s inevitable that more than one good regenerative medicine talk will appear in Right Turn. The talk below, by Dr. Robert Langer of MIT, takes some commitment at nearly 18 minutes in running time, but if you’re a fan of biomaterials (or Dr. Langer), this is a fascinating look at how every day items have been repurposed for medical applications in surgery. This is also an opportunity to watch an engaging speaker, and pioneer in the field of biomaterials, describe his amazing achievements.
Our regular feature, Right Turn, showcases the “lighter” side of stem cells and regenerative medicine. Every Friday, we will bring you cartoons, photos, videos and other content that may be just as thought provoking as the written submissions that you are used to finding here, but they definitely won’t be blogs.
As always, we welcome your feedback and we also welcome suitable submissions. Be creative! Use the right (!) side of your brain. Make us laugh! Let’s see if we can make this new direction a positive one for all of us. Send your submission to info(at)ccrm.ca.
