You would like to understand the Life Sciences

Conventional academic courses do not enable an integrated understanding of (or even to fathom) the Life Sciences in the Universe. Education is so fragmented that even a whole life would not enable you to acquire all the necessary qualifications. Forget it. 

Another solution is to follow our Life Sciences Programme that leads to the Doctorate in the Life Sciences.

Perhaps you just want to talk/write to someone?

bulletYou don't know what to do, you're confused and it's boiling inside...
bulletYou feel depressed, worried, anxious, lonely...
bulletDon't hesitate.......Just a friendly exchange of correspondence
bulletThat's what we are here for: at least you shall have one person to talk to... a far away friend

As you can see for yourself, you can have:

  1. A chat
  2. A quick definition
  3. A thorough and detailed reply to your enquiry
  4. A tutorial (clinical or academic)
  5. An online course
  6. A Doctorate in The Life Sciences & Medicine (*)

    (*) The Doctorate in The Life Sciences & Medicine is in the process of being integrated into the much more ambitious Doctorate in Interfaces. See below.

Please read attentively

A chat is an exchange of correspondence with someone you can trust implicitly. Your details including the substance of the conversation shall be kept strictly confidential. [The trouble with chat rooms is that you never really know what your virtual correspondent is going to do with the information that you have chosen to give him/her.]  Please note that chats are non medical.

A quick definition shall give you something more than what anyone can find in a medical dictionary.

A thorough and detailed reply to your enquiry is a one-way passive yet complete straightforward answer to a focussed academic question. You won't need to look elsewhere.

A tutorial is obviously also a thorough and detailed reply to your enquiry but in addition corresponds to an interactive follow up of your question on a step by step basis. There are two types of tutorials: clinical and academic. Health issues (medical advice, medical questions, medical concerns, medical information, medical diagnosis information, ...) fall under clinical tutorials because more often than not we need further details to make sure that our reply is correct and thoroughly understood. Here again, you won't have to waste your time elsewhere. Academic tutorials also include advice regarding medical books and publications because the research process must necessarily be interactive. 

An online course is a customised accelerated course. There are no "standard" courses simply because each program has to be adapted to the user's own abilities and potential. This course is partly experimental depending on the interactive feedback. You should in fine be able to master the essentials of a major medical course (eg. neurology) in maximum one week. However for practical purposes, we shall start off at one month and see how it goes. We shall try our utmost to enable you to master any given field in the medical sciences and/or medicine. You won't have to go to any school or university.

The Doctorate in The Life Sciences & Medicine (D.LSc.) is in the process of being integrated into the much more ambitious, highly integrated and sophisticated interdisciplinary programme leading to the Doctorate in Interfaces (D.I.) that shall enable you to deal with just about any challenge that you may be faced with on Earth or in Space, thereby waiving the need for any other Degree. 

In this Degree/Title-Obsessed World, we have temporarily retained the conventional suffix D.I. We hope that this shall not be necessary in the future. Indeed, not only is knowledge acquisition a natural process, but there is so much to learn and to "know" that bragging about the little that we do "know" seems unwarranted and childish.

It is essential to understand that for any given question, the replies cannot possibly be expressed in the same way for people who come from different backgrounds, have different personalities and motivations.

We are very pleased with your questions and reactions, but please bear in mind that customised answers to your concerns require a great deal of hard work and a considerable investment as regards medical reference books, periodicals, CDs and so forth.
