Thanks to advances in gene editing technologies and genomics, it’s possible to edit out abnormalities leading to the elimination of major disease categories – which holds the biggest promise for precision medicine.
In addition, the near-constant innovation and speed of processing in the data analytics space are making it more possible to analyze enormous amounts of data in little time leading to expedited discoveries.
Precision medicine is already changing lives. Targeted therapies have made countless lives better and have made populations live and prosper longer. Patients should consider educating themselves on the latest therapies that apply to their conditions and to understand that the field is moving rapidly and robustly. What is not possible today could be within reach in a very short time as research catches up with the data and innovative approaches. Read more
