Health science will only get better -- if public policy doesn't kill off R&D in the name of funding universal care.
Below the fold, the shape of things to come:
- Gene therapy.
- Personalized medicine.
- Thought-controlled prostheses (and for my fictional treatment, see Fools' Experiments).
- Medical nanobots scouring our arteries and delivering medicine exactly to the point in the body that needs it (and for my fictional treatment, see Small Miracles).
- And much, much more.
