Why you should listen
Frederick Balagadde is a research scientist in the Engineering Technologies Division at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. As a graduate student at Caltech and Stanford University, Frederick invented the micro-chemostat: a first-of-its-kind microfabricated fluidic chip that mimics a biological cell culture environment in a highly complex web of tiny pumps and human hair-sized water hoses, all controlled by a multitasking computer.
Frederick's pioneering research has attracted interest in the scientific community, including a publication in Science Magazine.
Frederick was a TEDGlobal 2009 Fellow and is a TED Senior Fellow.
