UC Riverside biologist is invited speaker at TED Conference
Date:2/1/2010

RIVERSIDE, Calif. Biologist Cheryl Hayashi, who studies spider silk at the University of California, Riverside, has been invited to present her work at the prestigious TED Conference, held annually in Long Beach, Calif. The dates of this year's TED Conference are Feb. 9-13. Hayashi's talk on spiders and their silks is scheduled for Feb. 10.

She is one of about 50 speakers at TED2010. Other speakers include singer and activist Sheryl Crow; philanthropist Bill Gates; chef Jamie Oliver; neuroscientist and philosopher Sam Harris; comedian Sarah Silverman; autism activist Temple Grandin; and the writer Michael Specter. The complete list of TED2010 speakers can be found here.
