XVIVO, TEDMED, and Jeffrey Karp


We always excited to get to help the amazing speakers at the annual TEDMED conferences. This year, we are working with Dr. Jeffrey Karp of Harvard to illustrate his inspiring work on biomimicry.

Biomimicry is the term given to invention inspired by nature. Like us, our non-human cohabitants have gone through millennia of evolution, selection, and adaptation. Whether it be a shrub, a butterfly, or a cockroach, by understanding how these miraculous lifeforms do what they do, we’re already halfway toward making something for which nature has given proof-of-concept.

Jeff Karp is set to deliver his talk during TEDMED 2014, which runs from September 10-12. Don’t miss the chance to hear about the amazing things he’s doing across science and medicine.

I came to XVIVO with only a few basic thoughts, and from these ideas, they worked out an excellent and striking image that perfectly conveyed the scientific point. I was very pleased with the experience, and I would recommend XVIVO to anyone that wants to explain complicated scientific ideas with clear and professional images.
