Scientific MOOCs follower. Author of Airpocalypse, a techno-medical thriller (Spring 2017)


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!


Anticipating the $100 genome era and the P4™ medicine revolution. P4 Medicine (Predictive, Personalized, Preventive, & Participatory): Catalyzing a Revolution from Reactive to Proactive Medicine.


I am an early adopter of scientific MOOCs. I've earned myself four MIT digital diplomas: 7.00x, 7.28x1, 7.28.x2 and 7QBWx. Instructor of 7.00x: Eric Lander PhD.

Upcoming books: Airpocalypse, a medical thriller (action taking place in Beijing) 2017; Jesus CRISPR Superstar, a sci-fi -- French title: La Passion du CRISPR (2018).

I love Genomics. Would you rather donate your data, or... your vital organs? Imagine all the people sharing their data...

"Astonishing Splashes of Colour"

With one of my favorite books: "Astonishing Splashes of Colour" by Clare Morrall, Man Booker Prize Finalist!
Still alive on this pic (taken today), though I'm working on the storyboard of two musicals and one "Tim Burton" (film) ... My co-writer is still alive too... Our brain (do we have one for both of us, or one for each of us? I'm not sure anymore...) is über-working... aaand we're both drained... So refreshing to read "Astonishing Splashes of Colour"! Thank you Clare Morrall for this lovely book...
