Startup Rising

Author: Christopher M. Schroeder
Publisher: St. Martin's Press
ISBN: 9781137356710
Release Date: 2013-08-13
Genre: Business & Economics

Despite the world's elation at the Arab Spring, shockingly little has changed politically in the Middle East; even frontliners Egypt and Tunisia continue to suffer repression, fixed elections, and bombings, while Syria descends into civil war. But in the midst of it all, a quieter revolution has begun to emerge, one that might ultimately do more to change the face of the region: entrepreneurship. As a seasoned angel investor in emerging markets, Christopher M. Schroeder was curious but skeptical about the future of investing in the Arab world. Travelling to Dubai, Cairo, Amman, Beirut, Istanbul, and even Damascus, he saw thousands of talented, successful, and intrepid entrepreneurs, all willing to face cultural, legal, and societal impediments inherent to their worlds. Equally important, he saw major private equity firms, venture capitalists, and tech companies like Google, Intel, Cisco, Yahoo, LinkedIn, and PayPal making significant bets, despite the uncertainty in the region. With Startup Rising, he marries his own observations with the predictions of these tech giants to offer a surprising and timely look at the second stealth revolution in the Middle East-one that promises to reinvent it as a center of innovation and progress.

The Personalized Medicine Revolution

Author: Pieter Cullis
Publisher: Greystone Books
ISBN: 9781771640398
Release Date: 2015-02-10
Genre: Health & Fitness

Every one of us is unique. With recent advances in technology, we now know that that statement is more true that ever: we are each individuals, right down to a molecular level — a one-of-a-kind combination of genes, proteins, and metabolism. So why does healthcare still take a one-size-fits-all approach? The same methods are used on everyone to diagnose illness, and the same drugs are used to treat it — despite the fact that those methods and treatments are not effective for everyone and are even harmful for some. Shouldn’t our medicine be tailored to our differences? The Personalized Medicine Revolution explores recent advances in genomics, the study of the human genome — as well as its cousins proteomics, metabolomics, microbiomics, and the like — and explains how technology is even now changing the way medicine is delivered. Along the way, it takes the reader through the five critical healthcare areas that will be transformed most radically by personalized medicine — prediction, prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and monitoring — and examines the practical and ethical issues involved. Finally, it details how readers can use personalized medicine to take charge of their own health and build a stronger and safer medical system.
