SIBM - Mayur Parekh

  1. 1. My Dream ! Submission for Godrej LoudByDr. Mayur ParekhMBA – I SIBM Pune (35229)
  2. 2. Some Gyaaan .. Genetics 101Might just help to understand myDream
  3. 3. Genetics 101
  4. 4. Genetics 101 – An overview Kindly click on the image for a quick overview
  5. 5. And my dream is ……
  6. 6. Getting my EntirePersonalised Genome Sequencing done !! To understand .. Why I am .. The way I am !
  7. 7. Why Do it !? The Human Genome is the one of the most fascinating things known to man ! Even though significant breakthroughs have been made at ‘reading’ the genome – a lot of ground is yet to be covered at understanding - ‘ deciphering & decoding’ it ! Bio-mimcry : Once, the exact mechanism by which this complex genome functions is understood, it can be applied to various enigmatic problems faced by us in real life .. From engineering to economics !
  8. 8. Why Do it !?a) Genomic Drugsb) Theranostics ( That’s Therapeutics + Diagnostics)They are the words at the core of oncoming Medical Revolution !
  9. 9. Why Do it !? I am Medical Doctor by profession. The excitement of having my own genome sequenced is as exciting an idea to me ( if not more ! :D ) as… Seeing the Higgs – Boson particle isolated in the CERN Hadron Collider to a Physicist !
  10. 10. Dreams come at a price ! But the the good news is .. The cost of Entire Genome Sequencing is decreasing at an exponential rate !! From $ 100,000 in 2009 To $ 1000 in 2014 (projected) Currently : approx $ 3500 - 4000 Expected to fall to approx $ 2500 in the next few months. (So.. I am sure it is going to be within the Rs. 1.5 Lakh cap ! :D .. Atleast within a year) (Trust me … it will ! )
  11. 11. Companies :Illumina, Oxford Nanopore Technologies, Sequenom,Pacific Biosciences, Complete Genomics and 454 Life Sciences
  12. 12. Heres a few more reasons why youshould to fund my Dream ! http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/hu man-genome-project-tenth-anniversary/ Look forward to hearing from you guys ! And .. Thanks a lot for giving us such a wonderful opportunity ! Oh BTW , Steve Jobs too got his Genome Sequenced ! 
