[Perspectives] Eric Topol: innovator in cardiology and digital medicine

Eric Topol, Professor of Genomics and Director of the Scripps Translational Science Unit in La Jolla, San Diego, California, seems to have the perfect job. He combines one day a week in the clinic, imparting 30 years of knowledge as a leading cardiologist, with his real passion—research in what he sees as the greatest revolution medicine has ever seen. By this he means smart medicine, the era of big data, bioinformatics, and consumer genomics, enthusiastically articulated in his 2015 book The Patient Will See You Now.
