We live in an Acceleration Age. There has never been a time in history in which humans have experienced so much progress, nor progress at such a rapidly increasing rate.
Consider the rush of progress in DNA sequencing. Beginning in 1990, it took over a decade and almost $3 billion to decode the first human genome. Today the time and cost to sequence a genome are undergoing an accelerating decline so that we will soon sequence a human genome in a day for $1k. This acceleration promises insight into common diseases like cancer, diabetes, Alzheimer's disease, and heart disease, as well as impressive cures with gene therapy and bioengineering.
In Rush: Science and Technology in Our Acceleration Age, science writer and BigInScience.com founder Brian Gabriel explores five critical accelerating trends that will dramatically alter our world:

Not every innovation reported in mainstream media is technically feasible. Many innovations you'll discover in popular science media have little relevance to our lives.
But when a feasible innovation is relevant, a new paradigm may be born. Big In Science discusses these big- paradigm-altering- innovations. Feel excited and prepared for the future at Big In Science.
Science writer Brian Gabriel established Big in Science (BigInScience.com) to teach about important innovations. Brian utilizes an education in medicine & science to assess the technical feasibility of innovations; an understanding of the humanities to perceive important needs and wants in society and identify innovations that address these; and experience as a biology professor to teach about innovations that will significantly impact our lives. Brian could be remembered as one of the most insightful & visionary science writers of our time.
Before creating Big in Science, Brian studied medicine at a "top medical school" (U.S. News & World Report) and completed all didactic (pre-clinical) courses, most clinical rotations, and Steps I and II CK of the USMLE Boards. He discontinued medical school in his senior year to be with a terminally-ill family member.
Brian also holds a bachelor's degree in psychology, and is a member of several honor societies including the Phi Beta Kappa Honor Society (the Nation's Oldest Academic Honor Society) and Psi Chi (the International Honor Society in Psychology). He enjoys teaching biology as a professor.
