TEDGlobal 2012 Susan Solomon

large cap between academic vs biotech & corporations

close gap

new tech

new research model

much safer

much lower costs

exremely new field

skin cells

repogrammed with viruses

inducent pluripotent stem cell IPS

use, modeling, drug discovery

take healthy cell in a skin cell

did it over and over again

a model of a disease in a living person

they found: that cells died differently than was tested in field

understand cause of disease

hypothesis: like research with a black box

see what goes wrong before it happens to patient

test for drugs

business model

av: 14 years

$ 4 billion

99 % faillure

new way

testing promosing parts of other creatures

downside, mice dont have same structure, cant pull out braincell out of living human

what we can do, test drugs on diseased cells, no long waiting time

big picture

diseases affect people differenty

a drug can be safe for one and harmful for other

no one size fits all



made 1 by 1

by hand

not scalable

variations in techniques

New node


look at human genome

bring biology to data

biological stand in

need to have stemcells of all gentetic subtypes

robot: produces automatical stemcells

stemcells as avatars


drugs for side effectrs

rescreen existing drugs


people we care about will become patients

there fore important for us all

stemcell research


Susan Solomon enables private support for human embryonic stem cell research that aims to cure major diseases

emryonic cells

morph into any kind of cell in body

replace cells in our body


develop drugs, for diseases that are now not fully curable, Like we have diseases that are largely preventable now i.e polio

critical researches has been challenged

2005 NY stemcell foundation

medical research

dominated by large organizations
