Description:

As a leader in the movement to modernize medical treatment through the latest technology, Dr. Eric Topol is creating new, more effective ways to treat patients — ways that will dramatically bring down the costs of health care.

He is working to bring a new kind of medicine into widespread practice: specifically-designed treatments based on the individual’s unique genetic structure. This innovative approach, combined with the latest in medical technology, opens up a world of highly personalized treatment, better care, reduced need for hospital beds, and lower costs for everybody.

A dynamic and eloquent speaker, Dr. Topol presents fascinating developments in wireless technology that allow physicians to monitor and respond to their patients vital signs from anywhere in the world — all in real time.

He is also a leading medical researcher in the area of genomics, where his work has led to the discovery of the genes that increase a person’s risk of heart attack. He has pioneered new drugs and new advances in the treatment of heart disease.

As director of the Scripps Translational Science Institute, he is dedicated to training new generations of physicians and scientists for research based careers — bringing together the latest scientific findings and clinical work for more effective medical research.

Dr. Topol has been named the Most Influential Physician Executive in healthcare by Modern Healthcare magazine. He was also named one of the twelve "Rock Stars of Science" by GQ.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
