- How soon can Personalized Medicine and new ‘Smart Healthcare Networks’ move into clinical practice?
- What are the emerging technologies that will drive medical practice in the next decade?
- How is lack of standardization impeding progress in Computational Biology?
Read on to hear what experts have to say about these questions, in this issue of the IEEE Life Sciences Newsletter.
In an interview made at IEEE’s recent Technology Time Machine Symposium, Thomas Schmitz-Rode, of RWTH Aachen University, gives us his expert opinion on what is needed, in order for several key technologies to make their way into wide deployment and thereby transform healthcare delivery.
In our last issue, we presented the first installment of an exciting view of the emerging medical and healthcare technologies of the next decade as shared by Atam Dhawan, of the New Jersey Institute of Technology. This month we give you the rest of that report on 10 technical areas to keep an eye on
In his continuing column, the Computational Biology Corner, Mathukumalli Vidyasagar takes on the lack of standardization in equipment and points out the negative impact on
