The Future of Medicine: Ben Kompa at TEDxYouth@Columbus
Ben is a senior at Upper Arlington High School, but spends his days taking classes at THE Ohio State University. In addition to playing Bridge, throwing discus, and hanging out with friends, he works in the Sadee Lab of Pharmacogenomics at OSU. There, he was introduced to the possibilities of gene sequencing and personalized medicine, and began conceiving of a world where everyone had individually tailored treatments. In the future, Ben hopes to pursue a degree in biochemistry and continue to conduct research at the crossroads of medicine and public policy In thespirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)From:TEDxYouthViews:374 12ratingsTime:08:54More inScience Technology
