About The Author

My name is Bertalan Mesko, MD, PhD and I graduated from the University of Debrecen, Medical School and Health Science center with Weszprémy Award as a medical doctor in 2009 and finished PhD in the field of clinical genomics focusing on the pharmacogenomic applications of autoimmune conditions in 2012 with summa cum laude.

I’m a medical futurist with a mission to fill the gap between healthcare and digital technologies.

I’m the managing director and founder of Webicina.com, the first service that curates the medical and health-related social media resources free of charge for patients and medical professionals. I’ have given over 300 presentations from the Yale, Stanford and Harvard University to the centre of the World Health Organization and the Futuremed course organized by the Singularity University; and also a health 2.0 consultant for pharma and medical technology companies. Healthspottr.com included me in the Future Health Top 100 list.

I’m the author of the multiple award-winning medical blog, Scienceroll.com; and the founder and lecturer of the Social Media in Medicine online and offline university credit course which is the first of its kind worldwide.

My work was mentioned by the World Health Organization, Nature Medicine, the New York Times, Al Jazeera, British Medical Journal and Wired Science, among others.

I’m a member of Mensa International and the Kairos Society; and an External advisor at Mayo Clinic Center for Social Media.

  2. sorry, good. :)

  3. Thank you! I’m trying… :) But the English scientific blog community is of course much bigger than the Hungarian one.

    November 20, 2006
    • Nice blog, we have similar interests. I hope you keep up the good work! make the best from your side!

      February 8, 2010
  4. Then I wish I were literate in Hungarian! ;) Welcome to the blogosphere.

    November 26, 2006
  5. Don’t think that. If you’re alone in a community, it’s not so exciting… :)

  6. Welcome to the medical blogsphere and Best Regards from Mexico.

    So, are you going to be a genetist?

    November 26, 2006
  7. Thank you! :) Yes, I plan to become a clinical geneticist. Now, I work on Fragile X syndrome. In this blog, I plan to post interviews with famous geneticists…

    November 26, 2006
    • Hey!!! I cannot wait to read more of this. I mean, you just know so much about this. So much of it Ive never even thought of. You sure did put a new twist on something that Ive heard so much about. I dont believe Ive actually read anything that does this subject as good justice as you just did. :) :)

    Hi,
    I saw your link at easternblot.net

    I want to let you know about an other web site for science related cartoons…I like the cartoons there.

    web address is

    http://www.biocomicals.com/

    Thank you
    Pat

    December 3, 2006
  9. Thanks for the link, I’ll write a post about it as I loved their cartoons. :)

    December 3, 2006
  10. Hey, your blog is getting more and more successful man! I’m sure that Scienceblogs.com will come knocking on your door quite soon.

    December 14, 2006
  11. Thank you! :) But according to the blog stats, I don’t feel the same. On Saturday, Scienceroll will be one month old and I’ll publish my first month blog stat diagram. There is a spectacular oscillation.

    BTW, it would be really great. :)

    December 14, 2006
  12. very good portrait, NCurse ;)

    December 22, 2006

  24. Hello Dr. Mesko,
    I know you are a 4th year med student, but, you will have the doctor designation shortly. Congratulations.

    I am a new medical blogger (very different site and goals from yours) and I have been looking through the medical blogging community to see what other people are doing.

    I really like your site and plan to refer to it periodically. You have great articles.

    Would you consider adding me to your list of blogs?

    I have your blog in my list already.

    Thank you,
    Rima Bishara, MD

    January 15, 2007
  25. OK, I already said it but this screen popped up again.
    So, hello, again.

    January 15, 2007
  26. Dear Dr. Bishara,

    Yes, we have different aimes, but I like your posts, so of course, I added you to my blogroll. By the way, I’m as new to the medical blogosphere as you. Keep up this good work… PS: you have plenty of sponsors. Wow!

    I can’t leave a message on your site…

    January 15, 2007
  27. Dr. Mesko,
    Thank you for adding me to your blog roll.
    I apologize for the difficulty finding a way to comment.
    You can use the “Add Comment” feature at the end of each entry or you can use the email I posted with my comment (not for public viewing, of course).
    I’ll keep checking your work.

  32. Dr. Mesko,
    Thought you’d enjoy a couple of my recent posts.
    I took your advice and compiled a list of patient named diseases.

  36. Hi Bertalan,

    I am a copywriter, journalist and ad blogger – far from a medicine man, but just want to say I loved your blog!

    farrukh

    February 19, 2007
  37. Dear farrukh,

    it’s far the best to hear that from a journalist, not a medicine man. I write for you, not just for specialists.

    February 19, 2007
  38. Bertalan, I have read 10 posts, will be back for more. Really nice blog, posts that excite and intrigue me.

    February 20, 2007
  39. Dear Miriam, I left a comment on your page. :)

    February 20, 2007
  40. Subject: Protect Consumers from Dishonest Online Pharmacies

    As a blogger on health and medicine, you may be interested in a new article entitled “Guide to Buying Prescription Medicines (Meds) Online”, posted by Medicine Online (www.meds.com).

    The article offers clear-cut instructions to help consumers protect themselves from dishonest online pharmacies and to teach consumers how to avoid buying counterfeit pills.

    The new article is located at http://www.meds.com/onlinemeds.html

  41. Bertalan, thanks! I finally got rid of my habit to think that comments are good. In fact it doesn’t really matter. I just love blogging and will keep doing it.

    February 21, 2007
  42. hi Bertalan.. I’m Huda Toriq. I’m like you… a 4th year medical student.. but hasn’t yet done a lot of things like you did.. thanks for the inspiration.. I’ve added your blog in my blogroll.. But you might won’t understand anything in my blog-as a people who live in a country that don’t use English even as a second language.. I write my all my post in my language – Indonesian.

    Maybe some time or soon I’ll translate it also in English. I’ts nice to know you..

    March 3, 2007
  43. Thank you, Huda! I should speak Indonesian… :)

    Anyway, I started to blog in Hungarian first then after some time, I changed to English. So don’t worry. Maybe once you’ll change too.

    March 3, 2007
  44. Hi, Bertalan!
    I found your marvellous site today, and a lot of other very interesting sites associated with it.
    I have a web site where a computer model of cell proliferation in living tissue is published (www.cell-division-program.com). The program was made by my colleague with the theoretical background of my old articles. It is a program that naturally could not be fitted in a scientific journal. Besides, I don’t work. (A note about me exists on Wiki, there is also my personal story at http://ca.geocities.com/uoftfraud/)
    Now, I wonder if you could popularize this cell-division-program site. Since it is not in a journal, people don’t know it. I think it must be very interesting to your readers, as it is the first work explaining how the structures of the tissues are formed and how cells are replaced by new ones.

    March 5, 2007
  45. Just found your site. Will be stopping by again.

    March 24, 2007
  52. Just want to drop by and say what a great site this is! I will definitely be coming back often and check on you posts, very interesting indeed.

    April 2, 2007
  53. Thank you! :) What is the difference between DirectScience.info and Wikipedia for example? I’m curious about it as your site seems to be interesting.

    April 2, 2007
  54. Thanks. Well, when I started my site, I did not really know about Wikipedia. I thought of just creating a reference site for myself at first. Now that Wikipedia is popular, my site seems redundant. I am hoping now that I can write more extensive articles and I am in the process of adding new features (such as animation and java applets, and protocols) that are not available in Wikipedia. Though Wikipedia is definitely better in many ways!

    thanks for your visit to my blog…

    Great blog!

  60. Hi B.: I’m sorry to bother you – I know you are super busy, but I bumped into a bit of science I don’t quite understand in researching writing a post over at Healthline today & I was wondering if you, or someone you know, has time to post a response & explain what exactly

    commercialize fully human antibodies for autoimmune diseases means?

    http://www.healthline.com/blogs/healthline_connects/2007/06/biotechnology-comes-of-age-acquistions.html

    Should we be scared? Thanks in advance if you have time, & if you don’t know worries, I’m still your devoted fan…jc

    June 12, 2007
  61. I don’t think we should be scared but I’m not your man on the subject. Anyway, I know someone who could tell you more. :)

    I’m following a real-time blog which is tracking an outbreak of a global pandemic. http://www.dominieschronicle.blogspot.com

    I think it’s a great example of how web 2.0 can help us to explore medical scenarios. As a leader in the field of the use of the web 2.0 and medicine I’d be interested in your opinion and whether or not you think such innovation has any merit..

    February 3, 2008

    Hi Bertalan, I find your blog really amazing.
    I am Ana, from Belgrade, and I am information specialist at Institute of Oncology and Radiology of Serbia, that is a great blog. As I am NOT medical staff , but phylologyst , I try to understand what really means PGP , personalized medicine. As I see it is only focused to genes and PGP? I will post on my blogthe information about you and your work ( blog ) to my researchers.
    I know it will be interesting for them.

    March 6, 2008
  99. Ana, thank you for the encouragement! It means a lot to me. In Central-Europe, it’s not so easy to promote these new tools in medicine.

    Anyway, personalized genetics is somewhere between genetics and preventive medicine. It not only focuses on genes, but the whole genome of a person. Check out the Gene Genie carnival (genegenie.wordpress.com) for more.

    I wish you the best!

    March 6, 2008
  100. Ana #

    I already checked Gene Genie carnival and informed our researchers about your blog http://ncrcbiblioteka.blogspot.com (it is in serbian language)
    The latest thing I know that we are doing is preventive of thyroid cancer by gene prevention. ( high incidence of thyroid cancer)
    But we do for years on BRCA1 and BRCA2, for breast cancer.
    I am sure your site will help to many of our medical specialists.

    And your site is also on Guus van den Brekel’s blog http://digicmb.blogspot.com/ coordinator of electronic’ services in Univesity of Groningen. ( i saw it few days ago)

    March 30, 2008
  104. Nice site. My blog began on blogger as a simplification of medical studies, but it didn’t fare well so I moved it here and threw in other topics. Almost all of my health articles are in the archives.

    We had the same basic premise–it is a good one.

    News agencies are not good at interpreting studies–of any kind:)

    Take Care!

    Hello!
    Your blog was recommended to my by Andras Szekely (tomographyblog.com) and I must confess I am most impressed and have found the blog very useful. I plan on studying medicine at your school and you guys have re-fired my interest to study there.
    Hope we’ll meet sometime.
    Bye and the sky is your limit!

  127. Hi Bertalan,

    I’m a second-year medical student at Yale trying to develop a wiki of the best resources on the web. There are already many variants of this (including the Medical Education 2.0 concept).

    What I have been trying to do, however, is create a site that would allow students to post, comment on, and rate online resources. (Ideally, it would also allow users to upload screen shots of the site.)

    Essentially, it would be like a restaurant review site, but for web resources.

    We established a primitive version of the site here:

    http://yalemedreview.pbwiki.com/

    Luckily, the librarians at the Cushing-Whitney Library at Yale thought this was a pretty useful idea and they asked their head developer to begin designing a more sophisticated site (using Jango, I believe).

    I was just wondering if you know of any other sites like the one I’ve described. Any suggestions you have would welcomed! Feel free to shoot me an email.

    Best,
    Peter

    February 13, 2009

    Hi Bertalan, did you read this morning’s International Herald Tribune? You are on PAGE 1 in the Twitter story! The funny thing is that the online version then forgets about you.

    How is that?

  139. Hey Bertalan,

    Just found your blog and think you’re doing a great job! I saw you’re headed to grad school soon, so I wanted to let you know about a resource I just launched, called BenchFly (http://www.benchfly.com). Our primary goal is to support researchers lives both in and out of the lab. We’ve created an open-access resource for scientists to share tips, tricks and techniques via video- bringing first-hand instruction to anyone with an internet connection. Check it out if you have a minute- I’d be happy to talk with you more about it if you’re interested.

    Keep up the good work!

    Hello,
    I found your site though Google as it is related to my own Health sites. Your site seems to be relevant to mine & I am interested in exchanging links with your site. I have many more high ranking Health blogs with a PageRank of 3 and 4.

    I have been swapping links for while now and have found it very beneficial to search engine rankings for everyone. If you are interested just mail me back and I can show you my sites and hopefully give you some links asap.

    I can give you links into my blogroll or links pages according to PR.

    Thank you very much for your time and consideration on this matter and waiting for your positive reply.

    Hi,

    I love your blog. It is very useful. I would like to pay your attention to a relatively new scientific network, http://www.sciweavers.org, which does not focus on author citations or relationships but rather on tools and contents that scientists are using everyday. The network is a great resource to browse and download conference preprints by name, subject, and year. You can track your publications traffic by country, keywords, universities, you can convert major document, images, latex equations to other useful formats, etc

    publications traffic.

  146. That’s one of the most interesting PhDs ever. I’m studying that and I can assure it’s absolutely great.

    Hello…
    My name is Ali Salim Alshati. I live in Iraq. I am a 5th grade medical student in Baghdad University.
    I have a project that is going to be funded by the US embassy here in Baghdad.
    The project is about producing Cancer video game for people who are suffering from this chronic disease. This game will explain how the mechanism of the anti cancer drugs\medications are taking place inside their bodies.
    I believe as a medical student that this game will help them to continue taking the medication without feeling that these medications are not useful, as they will understand how the process of the treatment is taking place in their bodies.
    So, I want to use this fund to provide such video games to the people here in Iraq.
    And I hope you will be the one who will work together with me..
    If you are pleased with the idea, please let me know so as to provide you with more information.
    Best,
    Ali

You realize thus considerably in relation to this matter, made me in my opinion consider it from numerous numerous angles. Its like women and men don’t seem to be fascinated except it’s something to do with Lady gaga! Your own stuffs nice. At all times take care of it up!
