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).

"It's not about looking something up on the internet. It's about your own data, real time."

Eric Topol MD, Cardiologist: "Patients can now have their own cardiogram on their iPhone."
Putting patients in charge of their own data, instead of Doctors?
Putting patients in charge of their data instead of Doctors? Sounds like a printing press revolution.
"It's not about looking something up on the internet. It's about your own data, real time."
Healthcare revolution will comme from outside of healthcare.
The Future of Medicine? Doctors will still be needed.
