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?

"Doctors Vs. Technologists: A Medical Prize Fight"

"Technologists must accept that they can’t replace doctors with new technologies. Meanwhile, physicians must accept that computers and algorithms can improve their profession. Together, these powerful forces have the potential to take the health care system to the next level."

Great 1st tweet +1 RT "Doctors Vs. Technologists: A Medical Prize Fight"

"The notion that doctors can be replaced by technology has sparked a series of brawls between doctors and technologists over the last couple of years. Today, both sides continue to throw punches in the press and online.
As health care technologies become more sophisticated, the opportunity to automate medical decisions becomes more seductive. Yet, physicians are unwilling to throw in the towel. They point to the importance of human interaction and the dominance of the human brain over the most advanced computers."
