The Human Body as an Ecosystem: Brendan Bohannan at TEDx
The diversity of life has long fascinated Brendan who has focused on understanding the smallest forms of life—bacteria, viruses, fungi, and other microorganisms. He received a PhD in microbiology from Michigan State University and postdoctoral training in Ecology at the University of Chicago.
In the spirit 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)
