During this live studio recording of Science On Tap, Donald Ingber, M.D., Ph.D. will explain to host Graham Chedd why the name of the institute he heads at Harvard, the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering, nicely sums up its goal. Dr. Ingber’s stellar career has focused on turning nature’s solutions to engineering problems into practical technology – such as living cells integrated into microelectronic circuits, or human Organs-on-Chips. He also enjoys collaborating with artists and designers, and is known for his creative use of analogies in explaining his science. Credit: Alan Alda Center for Communicating Science
