Tim Mosmann is the Director of the David H. Smith Center for Vaccine Biology and Immunology at the University of Rochester, where he was appointed in 1998. He received his academic training in virology and immunology at universities in South Africa, Canada and Scotland. Dr. Mossman was one of the original members of a California start-up company, DNAX Research Institute, where he made his most important discoveries regarding specialized subsets of T cells and their contributions to immune responses. This work has since been recognized by several awards, notably the Paul Ehrlich/Ludwig Darmstaedter Prize in 2008. 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)
