Donald Ingber, MD, PhD
Studio 360 Interview
In May, 2006, Lu Olkowski from public radio's Studio 360 met with Don Ingber at Washington, DC's, Hirshhorn Musuem. It was in the museum's garden, nearly 30 years ago, that a Kenneth Snelson sculpture triggered an interesting notion in Ingber's mind -- that living cells are tensegrity structures, or structures that stabilize themselves by balancing tension and compression. In this interview, Don Ingber tells his story. [Original airdate: May 12, 2006]
