Exponential rates of technological advancements has resulted in unprecedented access to knowledge, specifically knowledge about how our own body functions. In an exciting and insightful talk. This plethora of knowledge is met with growing devices and means to understand how our body works, and perhaps more importantly what happens when certain parts of our body are not working as they should.

Dr. Weian Zhao is an Associate Professor at the Sue and Bill Gross Stem Cell Research Center, Chao Family Comprehensive Cancer Center, Department of Biomedical Engineering, Edwards Lifesciences Center for Advanced Cardiovascular Technology and Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences at University of California, Irvine. Dr. Zhao’s research aims to elucidate and eventually control the fate of transplanted stem cells and to develop novel miniaturized devices for disease diagnosis and monitoring.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
