This Is the Future of Medicine | Origins: The Journey of Humankind

March 3, 2020

the collective wisdom of all of humankind led to the medical advancements that made us modern we’re attacking the things that harm us on a microscopic level we’re finding new ways of preventing disease everyday question is how far can we go what seems to be fantasy and sci-fi in the world of health and human body is actually just right around the corner imagine having your own personal catalog of replacement tissue sitting on a shelf we can tweak a skin cell and turn it into a brain so and rebuild your body parts that’s the horizon and it’s not far away it’s not 50 years away it’s going on right now this lab is to genetics what the printing press was to written work here in this lab we synthesized DNA so a lot of people have heard about the human genome project where DNA was coded but here what we’re doing is actually building pieces of DNA the DNA code in every cell it’s not only a source of information for example your eye color your hair color height but it’s also sort of control of different processes in your body things like regenerating cells at different speeds in different parts of your body it’s an incredible incredible technology our overarching goal is making DNA ubiquitous to make it available to everyone the things that we’re working on right now we know can be game-changing better more specific drugs personalized drugs we’re enabling a lot of different types of projects but i always like to think about the people that are studying cancer there’s been a lot of cancer in my family cancer is a very dynamic disease but if you can accelerate research then you can actually create a designer therapy for a specific tumor and faster you can do that the earlier you can intervene and that’s everything in cancer in the world of synthetic biology it’s either going to be the thing that saves humanity or the thing that kills humanity so were part of an organization that self police’s in the industry we have different protocols to ensure that none of us will design and build something harmful to humanity and I think as we think about medicine this is the next revolution in Madison this is the ability to really create personalized medicine it’s an opportunity to help humankind

    more fantasie delusion about how to be healthy. humans end up with diseases because we behave like diseases.

    we could end 95% the disease today if people would switch to plant based diet, stop smoking, and be more physically active.

    Long road to prove that molecular will be our saviour. Next step is clinical trial… this step will take a lot of effort

    "The question is, how far can we go?"

    No, I think the question should be not how far CAN we go, but how far SHOULD we go

    Don't get me wrong– I am an aspiring medical professional/scientist. But I think it is important to consider

    That's amazing research

    A medicina …prolongar a vida foi uma das maiores vitórias tomadas à natureza?? O homem tem conseguido desafiar as leis da. natureza e o cancro tem conseguido num duelo desigual….com a medicina. A vida passou a conquistar anos ao tempo… …O tempo deixa de ser intransponível ….A incógnita para ainda se ir mais longe são os interesses e lucros que dominam!! Podemos inquirir o conceito de longevidade é bem distante do pensamento dos anciãos sãs tribos ancestrais?!! E considerar a dor do pobre é diferente da dor de um rico? eticamente existe igualdade?!!
