Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
In this TEDTalk Dr. Daniel Kraft demonstrates his Marrow Miner, a minimally-invasive device he invented that quickly harvests life-saving bone marrow with significantly less discomfort to the donor than traditional methods. Discussing the Miner's current and potential applications, Kraft explains that the adult stem cells found in bone marrow can be used to treat many terminal conditions, including Parkinson's and heart disease. Kraft chairs the FutureMed program at Singularity University and also founded IntelliMedicine, which focuses on connected, data-driven personalized medicine.
