Surviving the Outer Limits: Life in Saturated Salt: Amy Schmid at TEDxNCSSM

Amy K. Schmid is an assistant professor in the Duke University Biology Department. Her work in systems biology focuses on the way archaeabacteria survive in extreme, dynamic environments. She received her bachelor's degree magna cum laude in Biology and German Literature from Marquette University in 1996. In 1997, Schmid was selected to participate in the Fulbright Program, which allowed her to study abroad at Eberhard-Karls University for a year. She attended the University of Washington, from which she received her Ph.D. in 2004. She worked as a postdoctoral fellow at the Institute for Systems Biology in Seattle, Washington until 2008. Her work at the time focused on the transcriptional and translational response to oxygen level changes of archaeabacteria in environments with high salt concentrations. She was appointed to the position of Senior Scientist at the Institute, a role in which she stayed until 2009. In August of 2009, she became an assistant professor of biology at Duke University.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)
