Jordan Miller Presents at TEDxYouth@SanDiego

Jordan Miller, a postdoctoral fellow in the Tissue Microfabrication Laboratory directed by Chris Chen, Skirkanich Professor of Innovation in the Department of Bioengineering, gave a talk at TEDxYouth@SanDiego entitled, "Sweet Success: How Dessert Inspired My Research."

TEDxYouth@SanDiego is a partnership between TEDxSanDiego, local high school students, area educators and business mentors. The event invites students to experience the power of ideas and the possibility of bringing them to life.  Speakers are" big thinkers and big doers" spanning a wide range of  disciplines and generations.

Miller is a founding member of Hive76 in Philadelphia, and a RepRap core developer. His research in the Department of Bioengineering combines chemistry and rapid prototyping to direct cultured human cells to form more complex organizations of living vessels and tissues. Miller has been in the 3D maker community since the beginning. He developed the first MakerBot heated build platform at Hive76 and is delighted to use his RepRap 3D printer every day in the lab for biomedical research and regenerative medicine.
