    David Page, Director of the Whitehead Institute and professor of
    biology at MIT, has shaped modern genomics and mapped the Y
    chromosome. And hes here to say, Human genome, we have a problem.
    Page contends that medical research is overlooking a fundamental
    fact with the assumption that male and female cells are equal and
    interchangeable in the lab, most notably because conventional wisdom
    holds that the X and Y chromosomes are relevant only within the
    reproductive tract. But if the sexes are equal, why are women more
    likely than men to develop certain diseases, and vice versa? This
    compelling talk from TEDxBeaconStreet foretells how changing the way
    we understand the sexes could transform health care.The Director of
    Whitehead Institute and MacArthur genius grant winner David Page is
    a pioneer in genetics, and his renowned studies of the sex
    chromosomes have shaped modern understandings of reproductive
    health, fertility and sex disorders. 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)
