Precision Medicine will need to get out of the pharma silo that is based on symptoms

Welcome to the digital era of biology (and to this modest blog I started in early 2005).

To cure many diseases, like cancer or cystic fibrosis, we will need to target genes (mutations, for ex.), not organs! I am convinced that the future of replacement medicine (organ transplant) is genomics (the science of the human genome). In 10 years we will be replacing (modifying) genes; not organs!

After low-cost airlines (Ryanair, Easyjet ...) comes "low-cost" participatory medicine. Some of my readers have recently christened this long-lasting, clumsy attempt at e-writing of mine "THE LOW-COSTE INNOVATION BLOG". I am an
early adopter of scientific MOOCs. My name's Catherine Coste. I've earned myself four MIT digital diplomas: 7.00x, 7.28x1, 7.28.x2 and 7QBWx. Instructor of 7.00x: Eric Lander PhD.

My motto: Go Where You Are Celebrated, Not Where You Are Tolerated.

I love Genomics. Would you rather donate your data, or... your vital organs?

Precision Medicine in Organ Transplant

Jesus CRISPR Super Star

Scientists from Australia & UK have created a “biosensor mouse” that predicts spread of pancreatic cancer cells
If dying Steve Jobs
And Andrew Lloyd Webber
Wrote a Musicome
"Aren't you tired of all those
It would tell the story
Of that cool genome
editing tool:
Who is this Jesus CRISPr?
The superstar
Helping parents
With a sick son
Get a Nobel Prize.

"Cracking the Code"
"Fixing the Code"
All done by parents:
The Mission Massimo team.

Nobody else seems
to be in charge.
Not even doctors
Not even scientists
Not even academia
Not even big pharma.

Many thought
Mission Massimo was crazy.
But at M.I.T.
I was told that
"Crazy" could earn you a Nobel Prize
Even if you have no PhD
But end up
Changing medicine.

Jesus CRISPr and Mission Massimo
Did some disease modeling on a mouse
Then they built a platform
To cure thousands of people.

Three decades later
Old Mission Massimo
Steals the show.
Jesus CRISPr Superstar
Sharing a Nobel Prize
With the crazy people.

 Patients Just Care About A Cure

The Very Private Life of My Genome

Welcome to this stupid blog I started in 2005.

This is me. Still struggling to find some kind of comfort zone. Any comfort zone would do, I am neither picky nor fussy... But I can't seem to get there, as I keep falling into those bloody holes... Meanwhile, time is ticking...
My husband, Eric, is a mixture of the Grinning Cat and R2y (R2D2).

Should I start looking for my ancestors and my genetic profile?
23andMe, what do you make of this??...
