At the nexus of technology and medical science, digital healthcare solutions are created to better manage illnesses and health risks and promote wellbeing. Digital technologies are now integral to daily life, and the use of wearable devices, mobile health, health information technology, and telemedicine provide us with a wider set of tools to address health issues. Developments in AI, big data, robotics, and machine learning are envisioned to bring about major advances in digital healthcare.
Omics technologies enable comprehensive, high-throughput analyses of pools of biomolecules to give insight into an organism’s structure, function, and dynamics. Examples include proteomics, transcriptomics, genomics, metabolomics, lipidomics, and epigenomics, but omics-driven approaches continuously widen their scope to more extensive and diverse sets of molecules. Integrated omics that allow for the interpretation of multi-omics datasets will potentially reveal novel understandings of basic biology, health, and disease.
Modern medicine’s paradigm shift has fueled the transition from the “one drug fits all” concept to personalised therapeutics and new ultra-sensitive non-invasive diagnostics. The development of novel targets and biomarkers, tissue regeneration technologies, cell and gene therapies put the focus on treating the root cause of the diseases with the ultimate goal of ensuring more effective and sustainable healthcare.
Environmental biotechnology addresses global issues such as waste management, remediation of contaminated environments, renewable energy generation, and biomass production, by exploiting biological processes. New industrial and environmental biotechnology advances provide advanced solutions to environmental protection as an integral component of sustainable development.
Nutrition and food sciences
Adopting evidence-based nutrition as a foundation for improved health and wellbeing requires the understanding of molecular, micro- and macro-structure of food, the concept of nutrigenomics, and new developments in food engineering and agriculture altogether.
