Joe DeRisi - Hunting the Next Killer Virus














Since this has sort of been "Joe DeRisi week" here at MicrobeWorld, I thought it would be nice to include this presentation he gave at TED earlier this year. After all he did just receive the Eli Lilly and Company Research Award and Merry Buckley from the Meet the Scientist podcast also published an interview with him. (Click the Meet the Scientist badge on the home page to find it.)

Here's the TED description for the video:

Biochemist Joe DeRisi talks about amazing new ways to diagnose viruses (and treat the illnesses they cause) using DNA. His work may help us understand malaria, SARS, avian flu -- and the 60 percent of everyday viral infections that go undiagnosed.

  1. Watched the whole thing. Really great info and anecdotes about the viral chip. Joe is an awesome speaker and funny to boot! Love the design plans to make your own DNA Array machine with big red button lol. I'm lucky to get the honor of editing interviews such as Dr. DeRisi's MTS interview with Merry Buckley.
