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!

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...

Richard Bohringer: "Discard the French politicians, all of them!"

French actor and artist and writer Richard Bohringer says all politicians are useless in France (Europe?) since banks are ruling the world (not the politicians)... Richard claims he hasn't seen a single visionary leader in French politics (right-left etc.) in three decades... Well, he isn't the only one... The problem with banks is that in times of economic crisis, they play the role of the arms dealer... French banking system is on the verge of becoming as outdated as French "telcos" - France Telecom & Orange just before they got disrupted by Free, says Marc Fiorentino, ex-trader and investments specialist, Paris. In this podcast in French, he is talking on BFM Radio, a radio that specializes in economics : download audio link.
