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: Doomsdare, a medical thriller (action taking place in Beijing) Fall 2016; Jesus CRISPR Superstar, a sci-fi -- French title: La Passion du CRISPR (2017). Special thanks to Prof. Emmanuel Lincot, lawyer David Kilgour and Isabelle Provost for their help.

I love Genomics. Would you rather donate your data, or... your vital organs?

Medicine

Highly interested in precision "genomic" medicine, in mHealth and patient engagement. MOOC & book worm. Earned myself two MITx edX certificates: genomics and python (quantitative medicine).

The one thing you need to know about me: passionate about science and society, working on a writing project: genomic entertainment. From the Broad Institute to Broadway? I'm talking about the human genome project here -- so YES: I'm talking about YOUR own genome...

I did a post-graduate teacher training at La Sorbonne university, Paris, taught German language and literature in middle and high school for over a decade and earned myself two MITx EdX digital diplomas (certificates) in genomics and quantitative biology: 7000x and 7.QBWx. Currently a MOOC student: "Explore Statistics With R" (edX). One last thing: I am a writer.
