Scientific MOOCs follower. Author of Airpocalypse, a techno-medical thriller (Out Summer 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!

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...

"Harish Gagneja, MD, a gastroenterologist in Austin, Texas, said the time he spends with his patients in the exam room hasn’t changed much since he started using a tablet. But he’s able to accomplish more in that time as a result of his tablet use.
Before the tablet, Dr. Gagneja found himself regularly leaving the exam room to access drug resources, check formularies and call insurers. All of that is now done at the patient’s side using apps to check drugs, or apps that allow him to share anatomical drawings with patients to explain procedures. By eliminating the time spent tracking down information, Dr. Gagneja said he is able to spend more face time with patients, making the exam time more of an interactive experience for them.
Dr. Gagneja is one of the nearly two out of every three physicians using a tablet computer in clinical practice. A recent survey hints at why so many doctors have adopted the technology."
