Buckle up for the state of the art in the fusion of the made & the born. Anthony Atala of the Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine presented footage of his bio-engineers growing human organs at TEDMED – from muscles to blood vessels to bladders, and more.  Thanks Michèle.

So, did you see anything worth posting on Next Nature? We would be happy to welcome you back as a more frequent correspondent from Down Under! If we make a guest-editor account for you, will you promise to write something brilliant?

OMG,
I was at TEDX in Brisbane, Australia and although very interesting hardly a scratch on the surface of this TED. The promise has been lurking for awhile but the video makes it all that more exciting:)
Great site!!!

What is your view on the coronavirus?


Siri Beerends: I really embrace the idea that viruses can teach us a lesson in modesty. It is necessary that our position as the dominant species on the planet is being challenged. I also agree that it is a mistake to think that we are becoming Gods. But unfortunately, this is actually what is happening now. Corona doesn’t teach us to be modest, it teaches us how we can -as quickly as possible- go back to business as usual: saving our capitalistic economy.
