Breakthroughs

Technology and human ingenuity are partnering to propel health and medicine forward. Pioneers, scientists, and entrepreneurs, some fueled by the energy of youth, others steeped in the wisdom of experience, are using computing power, new tools, and profound insights to advance prevention, unlock the key to longevity, repair genetic flaws, reinvent health systems, and create a new normal for people living with once-devastating diseases. The future belongs to those with the courage to dream it and the skills to research, hack, engineer, and design it into reality. What is on the horizon, and who is taking us there?
