I’m pretty excited about the Biohub that Mark Zuckerberg and Pricilla Chan announced yesterday. This will fund important and novel health questions, develop new tools and technology, and create better collaboration and sharing of information between Stanford, UC San Francisco and UC Berkeley. Their goal: to cure (prevent/manage) all diseases.
Heart disease and cancer are the top two causes of death in this country so I am sure there will be a lot of work in these areas. And hopefully there will be a big focus on how to prevent these to begin with.
Just another reason why I love living in the Bay Area, where it feels like the future of medicine is being born.
