From innovations in genetics to artificial limbs to computer-assisted healthcare, the frontiers of medicine are being pushed back at an ever-accelerating rate. Explore them here!
No one can really predict future health; emerging viruses, population “traffic patterns,” morbid behaviors, environmental degradation, and economic crashes very well could push life expectancy down instead of up. But there is also reason to suppose new technologies will expand healthy life spans.
These developments and thousands of others derive from science, technology, engineering, and math, and, through health, they influence all other aims and achievements.
