"From the Ted Talk by Diane Kelly: What we didn't know about penis anatomy"

Unscramble the Blue Letters

So to sum up: Twenty years ago, I had a college adviser tell me, when I went to the college and said, "I'm kind of interested in anatomy," they said, "Anatomy's a dead science." He couldn't have been more wrong. I really believe that we still have a lot to learn about the narmol structure and fotincun of our bodies. Not just about its genetics and molecular biology, but up here in the meat end of the scale. We've got limits on our time. We often focus on one disease, one model, one probelm, but my eeepixcrne suggests that we should take the time to apply ideas broadly between sytesms and just see where it takes us. After all, if iades about invertebrate skeletons can give us insights about mammalian reproductive systems, there could be lots of other wild and productive conetnonics lnukrig out there just waiting to be found.

Original Text

So to sum up: Twenty years ago, I had a college adviser tell me, when I went to the college and said, "I'm kind of interested in anatomy," they said, "Anatomy's a dead science." He couldn't have been more wrong. I really believe that we still have a lot to learn about the normal structure and function of our bodies. Not just about its genetics and molecular biology, but up here in the meat end of the scale. We've got limits on our time. We often focus on one disease, one model, one problem, but my experience suggests that we should take the time to apply ideas broadly between systems and just see where it takes us. After all, if ideas about invertebrate skeletons can give us insights about mammalian reproductive systems, there could be lots of other wild and productive connections lurking out there just waiting to be found.
