Richard Thorp’s company, ILSbio gathers tissue and the DNA from developing countries for studies that are transforming how cancer is being screened and detected. For his presentation, Thorp talks about how we could be just years away from catching cancer cells before they become dangerous.
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)
