I'm the author of Airpocalypse, a medical thriller


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...

L'atelier e-santé en 3 vidéos

Le numérique dans la santé, la notion floue de "mort clinique" ("mort encéphalique", "prélèvements à cœur arrêté"), l'organisation en silos de nos professionnels de santé, les conflits d'intérêts ... Mais tout cela va changer ... GRÂCE A VOUS : un citoyen averti en vaut deux. Voici venir l'ère du patient 2.0 ... Son challenge ? Réorganiser notre système de santé, pour remettre le patient au centre dudit "système" ...



Tout ce que vous avez toujours voulu savoir sur les transplantations d'organes sans jamais oser le demander. Qu'est ce que la "mort encéphalique" ? Qu'est ce que "le bloc des esclaves" ? "Le bloc des maîtres" ? Qu'est-ce qu'un patient dont le corps médical dit qu'il "est nettoyé" ? Bienvenue dans les réalités du milieu des transplantations d'organes ...



Mais enfin, qu'est-ce que la "mort encéphalique" ? Aviez-vous jamais entendu parler de prélèvements de reins sur patients "à cœur arrêté" ? Petit décryptage des rouages très bien huilés de la transplantation d'organes ... et de ce qui va disrupter nos aimables mandarins transplanteurs ...

"Approximately 100,000 individuals in the United States currently await kidney transplantation, and 400,000 individuals live with end-stage kidney disease requiring hemodialysis. The creation of a transplantable graft to permanently replace kidney function would address donor organ shortage and the morbidity associated with immunosuppression. Such a bioengineered graft must have the kidney's architecture and function and permit perfusion, filtration, secretion, absorption and drainage of urine. We decellularized rat, porcine and human kidneys by detergent perfusion, yielding acellular scaffolds with vascular, cortical and medullary architecture, a collecting system and ureters. To regenerate functional tissue, we seeded rat kidney scaffolds with epithelial and endothelial cells and perfused these cell-seeded constructs in a whole-organ bioreactor. The resulting grafts produced rudimentary urine in vitro when perfused through their intrinsic vascular bed. When transplanted in an orthotopic position in rat, the grafts were perfused by the recipient's circulation and produced urine through the ureteral conduit in vivo."
