With the rise of molecular electronics technologies, where will the rapidly emerging DNA revolution take us? Introduction In nature, virtually all electronic processes seem to occur in molecular structures. Since the tools of molecular synthesis are rapidly evolving, the emerging application of molecular building blocks for the manufacture of electronic components is gaining ground. Molecular electronics broadly uses either single molecules or nanoscale collections of single molecules as electronic…

With the evolution of biobanks rapidly enabling the creation of massive collections of biological material and associated information, how are these collected terabytes of data transforming nations? Introduction Biobanking is here. Artificial Intelligence (AI)-driven process automation, data analytics, robotics, the internet, and other rapidly emerging technological advances are driving the revolution of biobanks, biorepositories and biospecimen science. With the evolution of biobanking from a simple…

Introduction The gene editing revolution is here. While human evolutionary changes over the years happened naturally, slowly, and on their own timeline, recent advances in science and technology are on their way to fundamentally disrupt the very evolutionary process that has made us who we are as a species. Today, gene modification tools like CRISPR-Cas9 allow genetic material to be inserted, deleted, modified, or replaced, giving humans the ability to change DNA with precision. Understandably, the…

​​I. Setting the Stage Healthcare is a rare bird. We can neither disregard it nor make it cheap, simple and safe (Fernandez et al., 2012). In fact, we globally spend more than 10% of the GDP in healthcare and about $1,000 per capita every year (World Health Organization, 2018). But this is not the whole story: approved drugs halve every 9 years (i.e., Eroom’s Law); population aged over 60 years is expected to grow by 56% over the next ten years (TM Capital, 2017); the workforce to meet patients demand is…

TWEET THIS If your company is not investing heavily in data-driven intelligence, then it will not last the next decade. Here where technology has made it possible for us to see how the right drugs, programmed drugs or cells could save humanity's worst curse.   Technological Innovation - why is it speeding up? I've been writing on Linkedin occasionally and thought of summarizing some massively trending posts that might help explain my motivation for posting these mini-videos. Trending…
