TED Week Advancing Ideas: Stephen Friend*
Thursday, April 10, 2014 from 11:30 AM to 12:30 PM (PDT)
This year at TED Stephen H. Friend, co-founder and director of Sage Bionetworks, announced the 'Resilience Project', a new crowdsourced effort to understand the quirks and patterns of human genetic code. Friend proposed the revolutionary idea of studying those that are healthy, rather than the sick, as a means to treat sickness. Join our panel of UCLA faculty, alumni, and students as we discuss the importance of learning from healthy people, as a means to prevent sickness in future generations.
