Dean Kamen is America’s signature inventor: creator of the Segway, pioneer of the portable insulin pump, and hundreds of other breakthrough designs.

To help promote his mission of motivating young Americans towards careers in engineering, Dean agreed to host Dean of Invention – teaming up with journalist Joanne Colan to visit cutting-edge labs around the world.
