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!

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?

Homo Possessus, a book series, now on Facebook!

What is homo possessus?

It's a book series about people and who owns them. I'm still writing and meanwhile, I've created a Facebook Page that is aimed at knowledge sharing for all and by all, so...

your contribution is welcome and wanted!

Medicine and science are transforming mankind (homo sapiens). I'm writing a book series about people and who owns them, about cyberpunks, bio hackers. Digital devices, sensors, big and small data, genomics, 3D printing, bioengineering, organ replacement technologies (and donation and trafficking): what do WE THE PEOPLE have to say about this?

Homo Possessus: #Mind Map
Here's a cute (& home made) "Mind Map", just for you, reader of this modest blog... And yes, there will be a Musical... First in Boston, then in Vegas (provided everything goes ok in Boston ;-)
