I draw on all those experiences to help you develop more engaging narratives and tell more compelling stories. Listen here
Let’s connect to explore how we might work together to change the world.

With 100 trillion cells in the human body, bacteria outnumber our own human cells 2 to 1, and bacteria in our gut affect all our key organ functions. What if we could tap the gut bacteria of elite athletes to produce customized probiotics that could give recipients access to some of the biological advantages that make those athletes elite? I explore this question with George Church and Jonathan Scheiman of Harvard’s Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering.

Disruptive #5: Molecular Robotics – Building with DNA

Written on April 5th, 2016

unnamed

DISRUPTIVE – the podcast from Harvard’s Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering.

We’re learning to take advantage of properties of DNA that have served nature well- but in ways nature may have never pursued. We build with it. We tap its capacity to carry information to enhance our ability to explore the inner life of cells.

In this episode, Wyss faculty members William Shih, Wesley Wong and Peng Yin share what it’s like being on the frontier of science, explain how and why they program DNA, and consider potential applications of their work.
