Our understanding of genomics and evolution is exploding right now.
It is estimated that the doubling time of medical knowledge in 1950 was 50 years; in 1980, 7 years; and in 2010, 3.5 years. In 2020 it is projected to be 0.2 years—just 73 days.
We’re in the middle of the Biological Revolution. We as a species have escaped Natural Selection's gravity-well. Now, we find ourselves with tremendous power and responsibility.
This can be very scary.
Mainstream media and social media will assault you with terrifying headlines and doomsday claims.
Yet, I think most of us have learned that these channels of information are just trying to rob you of your time, peace, and energy.
But how can you possibly keep up with the scientific literature when we DOUBLE our medical knowledge every 73 days?!
Well subscribing to my newsletter will help.
When you subscribe to this newsletter, you will receive weekly summaries of interesting news and lessons about ways people are using biology to build a better world.
Ranging from topics like breakthrough cancer therapies, robotic spines to cure paralysis, space medicine to bring people to Mars, and more!
Consider me your personal geneticist friend. I, a synthetic biologist with 7+ years of experience, read the research and then tell you quickly what’s important and why the news is cool.
You then get to walk around knowing the coolest news and impress people at parties! (my friends have actually gotten girls’ numbers due to the news I share with them…)
