A sell-out crowd gathered for TEDxJacksonHole at Center for the Arts on October 5, 2012. Eight speakers from across the West came together to share ideas connected by the theme of DISCOVERY.
Featured speakers included Dr. Paul Cox, whose international research at the Institute for Ethnomedicine has produced two drugs that are wending their way through FDA approval to fight ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease). Biology professor John Hafernik, president of the California Academy of Sciences, talked about enlisting the help of citizen-scientists across the country to identify “ZomBees” - honeybees who are infected by the parasitic zombie fly.
