Biotechnology and bioinformatics continue to advance, enabled by personalized, miniaturized and targeted healthcare technologies

Biotechnology and bioinformatics continue to advance, enabled by personalized, miniaturized and targeted healthcare technologies

Definition

  • Advances in life and medical sciences such as genome sequencing and nanotechnology, resulting in new healthcare products and services

Outlook

  • Continued innovation in gene sequencing and editing for purposes of gene targeting and predictive medicine (i.e., knowing an individual's predisposition to developing certain diseases)
  • Greater number of people opting to sequence their genomes, resulting in valuable genetic information databases
  • Increased attention to nanotechnology (i.e., science at very small scale, approximately one hundred-thousands the width of human hair), including beginning of human treatment using nanobots to deliver drugs
  • Emergence of nanobiophysics, combining physics, nanotechnology and biomedicine to provide affordable and portable diagnostics at point of care rather than in labs

Implications

  • Allowing greater customization of healthcare services based on individual DNA
  • Declining reliance on traditional labs due to portable diagnostic technologies
  • Evolving healthcare delivery workflows and services
  • Improving health outcomes, including disease treatment and life expectancy
  • Leading to deeper understanding of human body, which could be used to develop potential cures and discover preventive medical practices for various diseases
