How Innovation will transform next 50 years: Infotech, MedTech, BioTech, Nanotech, FinTech, Green Tech. Keynote for Saudi Arabia government - VIDEO

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - BioTech, MedTech, Gene Therapy and Stem Cells

Keynote on future of science for Saudi Arabia festival of science and creativity.  Keynote starts at 4 minutes (use slider on video).

PharmaTech, GeneTech, MedTech, BioTech, NanoTech, InfoTech - fuse all these together and the result will be an astonishing jump in health care innovation.  Just the Genome Project alone has the power to completely transform medical diagnosis and treatment over the next 30 years.  In the year 2000 it cost over $850m to read one person's entire genome.  Today the same task costs only $2000, and we can expect this to fall to only $10 by 2035.

As a result we will soon be able to compare the genetic code of millions of people, to their own medical records, to identify gene sequences that are associated with disease.  We will be able to predict the future of your health, and plan early drug therapies to keep you well.

We will also learn rapidly about genes which stop ageing in animals - some of whom live for over 450 years (some species of clams). Scientists are learning from animals like some types of Rockfish that show now signed of normal ageing processes.  They die of infections and other problems, but their patterns of disease do not change with age.  Very different from humans, where we can predict risks of many illnesses just by knowing how old they are.

Truth about Future MedTech, health care and Big Data - key trends - interview with Futurist keynote speaker and physician Dr Patrick Dixon

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - BioTech, MedTech, Gene Therapy and Stem Cells

What did you learn as an inventor/innovator making a ground-breaking medical device in the early 1980s? It was an amazing time – as the world’s first desktop computers hit the markets in 1978.  I started a company called Medicom Ltd, which developed a suite of programmes to interview patients, help make a diagnosis, record health statistics, do accounts for General Practice doctors, connect to hospital lab equipment and so on. I learned that the most important thing about all medtech is to keep things simple and reliable: doctors, nurses and other health care workers are busy and need devices that work....

Oncolytic Viruses - New Cure for Cancer? Facts about Oncolytic Viruses - how they target cancer cells without killing healthy tissue - health innovation

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - BioTech, MedTech, Gene Therapy and Stem Cells

Video and article explaining about oncolytic viruses for a non-technical audience. We could be about to see the most dramatic advance in cancer treatment for 30 years.  A new form of treatment that is relatively easy to make, has virtually no side effects, with potential to treat a wide variety of cancers, when used in combination with more traditional treatments. That is the implication of early studies in laboratories and in humans, if all goes well in the next stages. Viruses are a common cause of cancer.  So what about creating a new virus to cure cancer?  Many natural viruses are known to be “oncolytic”. They destroy cancer cells but they damage normal, healthy tissue as well. Scientists have taken a variety of human viruses which normally cause illness, and altered their genes so that they are able to enter human cells, but cannot activate – except in cancer cells.

Oncolytic viruses to Treat Cancer. How oncolytic viruses kill cancer cells

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - BioTech, MedTech, Gene Therapy and Stem Cells

Over 50 years ago, scientists noticed that people with some viral infections were sometimes cured of cancer in surprising ways.  They discovered that the viruses were able to kill cancer cells. These were called oncolytic viruses – onco means cancer, lytic means that cells burst open and die. All these oncolytic viruses made people ill, so scientists tried to make new types of virus that would be less harmful to normal cells. Then they made an extraordinary discovery:  almost all cancer cells in solid tumours work in similar ways.  They grow in an uncontrolled manner and lack all kinds of normal functions.  What if we could make a damaged virus, with useless genetic code, where the code only works if activated inside a cancer cell? Today there are many different types of oncolytic viruses that have been altered from natural viruses in the laboratory, so that they kill cancer cells, while not damaging (many) normal cells.
