TEDxToronto 2014 Talk: Pantea Razzaghi: DIYBio: Unlock the Scientist in You

  • 2014

The future of medicine no longer rests solely in the hands of doctors and scientists. With the do-it-yourself biology movement, citizens from all walks of life are banding together to devise solutions for many of the medical conditions and diseases that plague societies around the world. Open science platforms like Synbiota provide us with access to pools of scientific knowledge, and allow contributors to expand upon formulae and data that already exists. In this TEDxTalk, Pantea Razzaghi presents the benefits of this new approach to science and suggests that perhaps a scientist exists within each of us.
