While many of the health scourges of the past have been controlled and even eliminated by modern medicine, some – such as malaria and cancer – remain deadly. At the same time, newer problems, such as antibiotic resistance, have emerged. New medical technologies and methods are needed address these problems and further enhance modern diagnosis and treatment capabilities. The promise of personalizing medicines, advanced ways of using health information, and a better understanding of how our bodies work give hope for a healthier world.
