Stem cell treatments offer great hope for millions of people worldwide. In this vision-casting talk, Dr. Daniel Kota argues that it is time to bridge the gap between stem cell science and society. A better understanding of the benefits and risks of stem cell will help patients and scientists alike. Dr. Daniel Kota is a scientist at Sanford Research whose program focuses on cellular therapy and stem cell biology. Native of Brazil, Dr. Kota received his PhD in medical sciences and completed a postdoctoral training in neurotrauma while unlocking the therapeutic properties of adult stem cells across the USA at the Burnham Institute, Tulane University, Texas A&M University and the University of Texas.
Dr. Kota has a passion for translational science and his work establishes a paradigm shift in the way we view adult stem cells and how we can use them to treat diseases. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
