Shocked and saddened to hear about the sudden death of Dr. Debbie Nickerson, giant in genomics. Rest In Peace.

It is _amazingly_ hard to fully transfer @WhatsApp  and @WeChatApp  from an old iPhone to a new one (including all the old chats)!

Congrats @bmeow19  on publishing our perspective "Open challenges in developing digital therapeutics in the United States" in the inaugural issue of @PLOSDigiHealth ! Highlights 60+ approved Digital Therapeutics & challenges in making and studying new ones!

Imagine for a moment, what if every time a drug failed a patient, we filed a bug report? What if we explored every treatment failure, clinically, biologically, and socioeconomically? So that it didn’t happen again in 2.0? #JPM20 

Whoa! @Medtronic  is publicly posting the design specifications for their Puritan Bennett™ 560 ventilator for innovators and engineers! HT @CatchTheBaby 

. makes an incredible point: Hospital infection kills more people than auto accidents. Hospital hand hygiene is in the dark ages. We should have more VC money attention on this, over self driving cars. #ML4H  #NIPS2017
