Terrific to see what Art and Hal are building...
 
Last fall, Larry Page and I announced Calico, a new company designed to take the long-term view on aging and illness.  Our goal is to make progress on a very basic challenge: how to help people stay healthier for longer.

Since then Calico has hired some extraordinary talent in the fields of medicine, drug development and molecular biology and genetics.  We’re excited by our work and want to ensure we can bring our ideas to people in need as quickly as possible.  So today, we’ve announced that we’ll be teaming up with AbbVie in a major way to turbocharge our efforts.  

Calico and AbbVie share a common goal: discovering, developing and bringing to market therapies for age-related diseases, including for neurodegeneration and cancer.  Calico will set up a world-class research and development facility in the San Francisco Bay Area, where we will explore the basic biology of aging and develop new medicines for patients with aging-related diseases.  AbbVie will use its deep pharmaceutical expertise to provide scientific and clinical development support and its commercial expertise to ensure these therapies are widely available.

You can read our press release below for more details about our partnership, which will combine the best of Calico’s research with the best of AbbVie’s development. We have progressed much faster with Calico than I ever imagined when we started a year ago, and I am tremendously excited about what lies ahead.

Terrific read.
Blogging and social media force us to think in public, says writer Clive Thompson, and that is making us smarter. It can make students quicker writers too, he says.

Another good move by Google+
Companies can now create restricted Google+ communities in which only associated users can participate.

Beautiful...
Rosebushes under the Trees was produced, as were most of Klimt's landscapes, during the summer holidays of 1904 and 1905, when he stayed in Litzlberg. The canvas is covered with dabs of colour and very small brush strokes in the style of a decorative motif or a mosaic. Klimt's landscapes became increasingly abstract, although he continued to work directly from the motif. What the painter observed merely served as a stimulus. The real subject of ...

Story

Digital Strategy + Creativity + Emerging Technologies
Introduction
I'm Head of Digital and Social Media for Pharma at Novartis. Before coming to Novartis, I was the Head of Web Strategy and External Digital Media at Roche, worked on internal communications at Genentech and led internet and social media efforts at Chevron. I've also been a Product Manager of Yahoo! News, a Senior Producer at Aol, and Technology and Science Producer at CNN. Digital innovations, communications, science and technology are passions along with learning.

I was born in Cuba and moved to the United States in 1979. So Spanish is my first language. And now that I'm living in Switzerland, I'm trying to learn German.
