Dr Susan Lim TED Speech : Transplant Cells, Not Organs
Susan Lim established her reputation as a surgeon in 1990 after performing Singapore’s (and southeast Asia’s) first successful liver transplant. She has gone on to further pioneer in the field of general surgery, two new surgical technologies for Singapore, the mammotome minimally invasive breast biopsy and robotic surgery for the private sector. She founded and is chair and CEO of Centre for Robotic Surgery and spearheaded the Robotic General Surgery Program for Singapore.
In 2003, Dr. Lim launched Stem Cell Technologies (i), a biotech company to research the use of adult stem cells for application in cell therapy and regenerative medicine. In 2004, SCT(i) entered into research collaboration with National University of Singapore to specifically research the use of adult stem cells as a treatment for diabetes.
In 2008, the American Academy of Continuing Medical Education named its 28th award the Dr. Susan Lim Award, in honour of Dr. Lim’s career, contribution and international achievement.

What Will a Liberal Arts Education Look Like in 50 Years?
At this year’s Aspen Ideas Festival, we asked a group of academics within some of America’s top universities to weigh in on the fate of higher education. “We won’t have liberal arts and sciences at all 50 years from now unless we really understand how to save what’s good, but reinvent what’s new and needed,” says Harvard University education professor Howard Gardner. Other panelists include Sebastian Thrun, Elisa New, Drew Faust, Erika Christakis, and Nicholas Dirks.
