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?

Heart Haiku

What could a Doctor from the future say about (for ex.) heart transplants? Have a Bone(s) to pick with organ transplants?... This is all fiction, of course... I guess a doctor from the future would find this obsession with vital organs (conventional medicine is an organ-based science; not a science based on the cell(s), the molecules and even individual atoms) weird and scientifically inaccurate.

Don't replace my heart
With a stethoscope.

I carry your heart
With me
A two-faced story.

Predation
Carved in the story
Of organ transplant.

I carry your heart...
Agape / Eros
Beat in unison
Fight in unison

Life and death story
Yes. Tim Burton style.

Don't replace my heart
With a stethoscope.
