    Can light stop the coronavirus? | David Brenner

    Can light stop the coronavirus? | David Brenner

    Far-UVC light is a type of ultraviolet light that kills microbes and viruses and, crucially, seems to be safe to use around humans. Radiation scientist David Brenner describes how we could use this light to stop the spread of SARS-CoV-2, the virus responsible for COVID-19, in hospitals, nursing homes, trains and other public indoor spaces -- paving the way for a potentially game-changing tool in the fight against the coronavirus pandemic. (This virtual conversation, hosted by TED science curator David Biello, was recorded July 7, 2020.)

    The case to infect volunteers with COVID-19 to accelerate vaccine testing | Nir Eyal

    The case to infect volunteers with COVID-19 to accelerate vaccine testing | Nir Eyal

(This virtual conversation, hosted by head of TED Chris Anderson, was recorded June 15, 2020.)

    A dose of reality about generic drugs | Katherine Eban

    Investigative journalist Katherine Eban set out to report on a seemingly straightforward question: Are generic drugs really identical to their brand-name counterparts?

In this alarming talk, she takes us inside overseas manufacturing plants and exposes the fraud behind many low-cost generic medicines.

    Let's make the world wild again | Kristine Tompkins

    Earth, humanity and nature are inextricably interconnected. To restore us all back to health, we need to "rewild" the world, says environmental activist Kristine Tompkins. Tracing her life from Patagonia CEO to passionate conservationist, she shares how she has helped to establish national parks across millions of acres of land (and sea) in South America -- and discusses the critical role we all have to play to heal the planet. "We have a common destiny," she says. "We can flourish or we can suffer, but we're going to be doing it together."
