How Crisis Becomes Opportunity | Ping Yeh | TEDxUCSD

vor 2 Jahren

In this talk, Ping Yeh reveals how he turned his tragic cancer experience into an opportunity to develop new technologies that aid the discovery of new medicines. He illustrates the issues with the way humans are currently used as guinea pigs for new drugs, and offers a solution.

Ping Yeh is the most recent True Triton recipient – those that go above and beyond to help advance UC San Diego’s mission, on campus, in the community, and around the world. He serves on the UC San Diego Alumni Board of Directors and its Executive Committee. His early career highlights include developing pioneering technologies and leading teams advancing new technologies for the storage industry. His life took a major turn in 2013 after being diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. After surviving cancer and the treatment, he was inspired to cofound StemoniX, a company that makes human organ microTissue to accelerate the discovery of new medicines. He currently serves as StemoniX’s CEO and board member. Ping enjoys service. He’s cofounded non-profits that have educated AIDS orphans in rural China and currently serves on the leadership committee for the National Marrow Donor Program for cancer patients.
