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!


Anticipating the $100 genome era and the P4™ medicine revolution. P4 Medicine (Predictive, Personalized, Preventive, & Participatory): Catalyzing a Revolution from Reactive to Proactive Medicine.


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?

Hacking Growth

Digital Spring, "Global Civil War" and Growth Hacking. Can you tell the difference?

On hacking computers, biology and... growth.

Computer hackers are hacking webcams, Facebook and e-mail and bank accounts, government data, etc. Bio hackers are hacking biology (DIY bio), tinkering with DNA, etc.
Now, how about growth hackers? "Products like Facebook, Twitter, AirBnb, StumbleUpon, Zynga, Dropbox, Reddit and LinkedIn were built without traditional advertising, brand partnerships or celebrity endorsements — in less than a decade. And the people who did it blew off traditional marketing for a new set of strategies that felt more like engineering and product development than a Don Draper strategy. But it worked. Their success has inspired and informed another batch of startups with equally stunning prospects: Evernote, Everlane, KISSMetrics, Qualaroo, Soma and countless other companies incubated off the radar, ready to explode based on the same strategies. The marketers behind these brands don’t see themselves as such, though. They are 'growth hackers.'"

Not sure, however, if "hacking growth" necessarily means "The First Global Civil War"... #globalcivilwar...
