Scientific MOOCs follower. Author of Airpocalypse, a techno-medical thriller (Spring 2017)


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!

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...

Why 23andme Deserves A Second Chance

"One could argue that 23andme represents to the medical establishment what a charter school represents to the public education system. Doctors and scientists may have greater difficulty than the general public in seeing the positive benefits that come from an entity that operates outside of their established system. Over time, the public has developed a balanced view of teachers’ feelings regarding charter schools. Perhaps the same balance regarding the views of medical professionals should be developed."

"Care models in the U.S. still reward treatment, though; not prevention."
