Dr. Anton Titov, MD. What is your vision for Gene-RADAR technology in the near and maybe mid-term future? Dr. Anita Goel, MD. In the near term we would like to bring Gene-RADAR to help with some of the pandemics and global health infectious diseases. There is a global unmet need there. Over four billion people on the planet don't have access to basic diagnosis. There are a few diseases that are very prevalent. They have a compelling use case for a platform like this. So not only can we help large numbers of people. There’s an unmet need and there's a need for something that's highly accurate and precise. Dr. Anita Goel, MD. But we do not need a 400-pound machine that requires running water, electricity, trained personnel, sample transport logistics. We are bringing to the world a mobile consumer electronic device. It can allow people to access information about themselves or about these diseases in real time. So it can be used for global health surveillance to track pandemics, to stop the spread of diseases. Sometimes there's an outbreak in West Africa to see how many cases and how it's spreading. Gene-RADAR enables public health officials to really keep a better monitoring. It allows to know how the spread of these diseases happens. It allows to take better countermeasures to stop the spread of these diseases. Dr. Anita Goel, MD. So that's our near-term goal. In the mid-term this could be used to really get into the area of precision medicine. You start to look at all of the other therapies for more complex diseases. You use an array of biomarkers. You can use real-time information about the DNA, about the gene expression patterns. A physician can now titrate the therapies and optimize the therapies and customize the disease therapies. Dr. Anton Titov, MD. Precise therapy is speaking to the needs of that patient. But then we can go much more broader than that. My deeper vision is you could do personalized nutrition, personalized wellness. You could start to really map out an array of biological information that now allows you to customize your entire life, your food, your nutrition, your exercise, your medications or supplements around this real-time information about yourself. So now you can optimize the "music" that comes out of your "DNA piano”. Dr. Anita Goel, MD. That's the bigger dream. It helps the human race get to the next quantum level in terms of efficiency. We help not just in terms of health, but in terms of wellness and fitness. This is a very interesting vision. Because clearly it's a personalized symphony for every person. And the symphony that changes throughout time, depending on circumstances and personal biology. Exactly, and it's an interplay. I think that that consciousness needs to spread in our healthcare system. Dr. Anita Goel, MD. That isn't just the genes you're born with. It's not just a predestined kind of clockwork expression of those genes. It's an interplay of that information plus the information that's embedded in the environment. This environment is determining how the music gets played. Certainly if we have better tools to become aware of this interplay and of our genetic boundary conditions, we can optimize our trajectories.
