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...

Competition: Win a medical masterpiece!


"I will participate. This is gonna be fun!!", says Operetta.
"The Wellcome Collection in London is hosting an exhibition called Foreign Bodies, Common Ground. It brings together the work of artists resident in medical research centres in six countries: Kenya, Vietnam, Malawi, South Africa, Thailand and the UK.
To mark this event, New Scientist CultureLab invites you to send in your own work of art. We are looking for an original creation that depicts your view of modern medicine and why it matters. It might be inspired by an encounter with a doctor, a scan of your brain or the impact of a treatment you've received. It can be a song, poem, painting, video, sculpture, short story or photograph… the sky's the limit."
