Don't Miss Out on the Annual Event Taking Place on Saturday, Nov. 18


Bellevue University professor John Kyndt, will be one of nine speakers to take the stage and present his ideas that push the boundaries of the unknown at the TEDx Omaha event, “EDGE,” set for Saturday, Nov. 18 at Creighton University.

Kyndt, who is a Professor of Microbiology and Sustainability at Bellevue University, will talk about his focused research on the genomics and biochemistry of bacteria and viruses from extreme environments, to better understand life’s adaptations to extreme conditions.

“These explorations and discoveries at the extreme edges of life teach us more about the diversity of life and how cells can adapt, and possibly even how there can be life on other planets with extremely different environments,” said Kyndt. 

Kyndt specializes in microbial genomics, metabolomics and bacterial photosynthesis.

TEDx Omaha is an independently organized TED event. As part of the global TED community, TEDx Omaha connects locally to explore ideas and situations that affect our culture, our environment and our minds.
