About Nina Tandon

As a child, Nina Tandon had a passion for disassembling and rebuilding her vacuum tube TV. Nina’s initial foray into biomedical engineering involved the development of an electronic nose used to “smell” lung cancer. Today, she is a certified yoga instructor, MBA from Columbia University, and an adjunct professor of Electrical Engineering at Cooper Union. Nina is also CEO and co-founder of Epibone, the world’s first company to grow living human bones for skeletal reconstruction. As a tissue engineer, Nina’s goal is to create “spare parts” for human implantation/disease models. Named one of the 100 Most Creative People in Business by Fast Company, Nina already has two talks on and is also a TED Fellow. She is also a member of TEDMED’s Editorial Advisory Board.
