Welcome to the age of the Plasti-sea: Richard Banati

Richard Banati

TEDxSydney 2014 · 26 April 2014

Can we really achieve sustainability with plastic if we keep going the way we currently are? In this amazing talk, Richard Banati outlines that without tracing the real life cycle of plastic, we are always going to be in the dark as to the real story. Richard Banati is an internationally-recognised scientist with interdisciplinary research interests in the brain's innate immune system and the development of advanced medical imaging for the detection of subtle of non-obvious brain pathology. The tracer principle, on which this medical research is based, has applications far beyond neuroscience. The research of Professor Banati and his colleagues has received recognition through the bi-annual Award of the German League for Research into Alzheimer's Disease, in addition to many more international accolades. Richard is Professor and Foundation Chair of Medical Radiation Sciences at the University of Sydney, Director of the Ramaciotti Centre for Brain Imaging at the Brain & Mind Research Institute (BMRI) and Director, University of Sydney node of the National Imaging Facility. He is now a member of the ANSTO Executive Team and supports the CEO in the focus areas of strategic research and national and international collaborations and partnerships.
