Creating Scientific Marvels that are Works of Art

Previous Next

During his TEDx talk, Don Ingber shares his personal path from an ‘Aha’ moment in an undergraduate art class that led to his discovery of how living cells are constructed to his most recent breakthrough – a Human Body-On-Chips – which promises to replace animal testing and advance personalized medicine. Don’s work breaks down boundaries between science, engineering, art and design and demonstrates that there are no boundaries to creativity. Don is the Founding Director of the Wyss Institute at Harvard University, as well as a professor in its Medical and Engineering Schools, where he leads a multifaceted effort to develop breakthrough bioinspired technologies to advance healthcare and improve sustainability. His scientific contributions have been exhibited in museums around the world, and one creation was named Design of the Year in 2015 and is included in MoMA’s permanent collection.
