  TEDMED Live: What Happens When We Mix Up the Models?  
(VTC)

TEDMED is a multidisciplinary community of innovators and leaders who share a common determination to create a better future in health and medicine. This program features brilliant short talks and stunning artistic performances that celebrate the power of unexpected connections to create important new possibilities. Join the Virginia Tech Carilion Research Institute on April 16-19 as we live broadcast this year's TEDMED program in our third-floor conference center.

Speakers for this session include:

Mike Pazin
ENCODE Program Officer Mike Pazin will shed light on how collaboration can help unlock more DNA secrets.

Gary Slutkin
Does violence spread like a disease? Epidemiologist Gary Slutkin of Cure Violence says the issue has been misdiagnosed, and instead created science-based strategies that aim to stop violence before it erupts.

David Odde and Black Label Management
David Odde, a biomedical engineer, and Black Label Movement, a collective of dance artists, team up to combine dance and science, shining new light on both.

Zubin Damania
Rapper and internist "ZDoggMD" Zubin Damania wants to shake up health care with ideas as bold and personable as his satirical videos.

Francis S. Collins
National Institutes of Health Director Francis Collins returns to the TEDMED stage to talk about the next big leaps in biomedicine.
