Can you imagine coming from a family of 21 kids in a small remote village in Africa with no running water or electricity and one day a snake bite changes your entire future and you end up a PhD student in WInston-Salem, NC? In this remarkable story, our guest Goodwell Nzou, PhD candidate in molecular medicine at the Institute at Wake Translation Science tells Valerie Bowling, Executive Director, the Conference Forum how he went from a village kid to an amputee to a band member that led him to a contest, a role in an Oscar winning documentary to a PhD candidate in a field that he hopes one day will allow him to grow back his own leg through regenerative medicine.
