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!


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


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.

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?

Recently named to Time Magazine'sTop 10 List for 2012, and dubbed a "A Godsend!" by Ben Brantley of the New York Times, Forbidden Broadway has returned with an all-new, fresh view of the highs and lows of recent seasons: Forbidden Broadway: Alive and Kicking! The celebrated roast of Broadway takes musical potshots at Once, The Book of Mormon, Spiderman, Nice Work If You Can Get It, Evita, Porgy and Bess, Anything Goes and Follies and more, and features outrageous costumes, hilarious rewrites of the songs you know, and dead-on impressions. This New York audience favorite has, over the years picked up a Special Tony Award, 9 Drama Desk Awards, an Obie, a Lucille Lortel Award, a Drama League Award.

Created and written by Gerard Alessandrini (2006 Special Tony Award for Excellence in the Theatre), who directs along with Phillip George (Whoop-Dee-Doo, Shout!), this production features Natalie Charlé Ellis, Scott Richard Foster, Jenny Lee Stern and Marcus Stevens.
