TEDTalks [electronic resource]: Nina Tandon - Could Tissue Engineering Mean Personalized Medicine?

TED Conferences LLC
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
Each human body is utterly unique, which is a lovely thought - until it comes to treating an illness, when every body reacts differently, often unpredictably, to standard treatment. In this TEDTalk, tissue engineer Nina Tandon discusses a possible solution: using pluripotent stem cells to make personalized models of organs on which to test new drugs and treatments and then storing them on computer chips. (Call it extremely personalized medicine.)
