한남대학교 화학과 교수로 39년을 재직한 이수민 교수는 지난해 8월 제자들이 큰절을 받으며 특별한 정년퇴임을 했다. 그의 제자사랑이 빛나던 감동적인 순간이었다. 그 는 정부가 선발한 젊은 과학도 10명중 한명에 뽑혀 1년간 국비 장학생으로 미국 대학에 파견되고 30대에 교수가 될 정도로 성공과 명예를 이루었다. 그러나 인생 최고의 황금기였던 37살에 삶을 송두리째 바꿔놓을 절망의 늪에 빠져든다. 자살을 결심할 만큼 인생의 바닥을 경험했지만 이를 극복하고 제 2의 황금기를 개척한다. 제자들을 위해 헌신하고 연구활동도 더 성실하게 수행했다. 그는 화학자로서 170여편의 논문을 집필하고 세계 3대 인명사전중 하나인 IBC 국제 인명사전에도 2회 등재되었다.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event

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)
