TEDxStanford 2017

Manu Prakash — “Saving Lives for 20 Cents”

Stanford bioengineer Manu Prakash delivers the first talk of the conference, “Saving Lives for 20 Cents.” Manu uses items such as paper, cheap children’s toys and string to create first a 50-cent microscope and now a 20-cent blood centrifuge.

Manu was one of 24 talks at the 2017 TEDxStanford conference held in CEMEX auditorium at the GSB. Stanford Video worked with University Communication’s Melinda Sacks and Events Services to shepherd this full-day event, the sixth at Stanford.

Stanford Video provided pre-production, video production, graphics, and live webcasting support for the event as well as post-production editing and posting to TED.com and YouTube.
