Modern medicine has blurred the lines between life and death, and is showing no signs of stopping.

In this talk, Rohin Francis explores how humans are pushing their bodies further than ever before, in sickness and in health. 

Join Rohin as he discusses cutting-edge medical technology keeping people alive, as humans explores the extremes of what's possible.

Dr Rohin Francis is a cardiologist in the UK. He trained in London and Cambridge and he is currently undertaking a PhD at University College London.

He makes YouTube videos concentrating on topics that don't get covered elsewhere like offbeat science understanding why modern medicine doesn't always work, or forgotten chapters of history. He likes to crowbarr in as many bad jokes as he can. Studies have shown that watching is associated with a 400% relative risk increase of becoming a more fragrant human being (actual risk increase 0.002%).
