Eric Brown is Chair of the Department of Biochemistry and Biomedical Sciences at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario. His research group is taking on drug resistant superbugs by researching new approaches for the discovery of new antibiotics. Brown lab researchers are studying complex and poorly understood aspects of the bacterial cell, including cell wall and ribosome biogenesis. Dr. Brown has been the recipient of a number of investigator awards including a Canada Research Chair in Chemical Biology, the Canadian Society of Biomolecular Sciences New Investigator Award, and the Canadian Society of Microbiology Murray Award for Career Achievement. Currently he is a member of the Medical/Scientific Advisory Committee for Cystic Fibrosis Canada and a member of the Institute Advisory Board for the Institute of Infection and Immunity of the Canadian Institutes of Health Research.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
