2017 TEDxBeaconStreet Interview with Angela Bair Schmider. As an expert microscopist, using state-of-the-art technology, Angie Schmider illustrates how nature brings science and art together, in real life and in artistic images. She shows how nature, via biosymmetry, reveals patterns in life that are demonstrable and sublime. By incorporating this into her teaching practice at Harvard College, Angie is able to bridge the gap between art and science to show students the beauty in the world.

I currently use sophisticated microscopes to study the organization of molecules in cells and correlate this organization to understanding inflammatory disease.
