The Reality of Doing Science in America | Simon Friedman | TEDxUMKC

The US research enterprise has historically been a juggernaut that drives forward both the economy and quality of life. This success has to no small degree benefitted from immigrants from all over the world. The formula is simple: take the best people, from wherever they come from, and give them resources to pursue their science. The continued health of American science depends on maintaining this approach. Simon H. Friedman is a scientist-educator and artist. His scientific work lies at the interface of chemistry and biology: described in the Economist, the NY Times and NPR (Here and Now). His art lies at the interface of meaning and absurdity: Winner of Science Magazine’s “Visions of the Future” essay contest, featured writer for Nature Chemistry’s “In Your Element” series, multiple featured films in the New York City Food Film Festivals and others. He has won the University of Missouri Governor’s Award for teaching, and was named the KC Pitch’s Best Science Non-Nerd. 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
