Where Technology and Patient Care Intersect

Where do patient satisfaction, medical advancement, and innovation meet? The answer is here—right in this issue as we focus on the patient experience and consider how best to integrate technology into that experience, rather than allowing technology to define it. Think Google Glass for hospitals, and you’re ready to walk down

Synthetic Biology

Synthetic biology aims to build or create new living organisms either from raw materials or from materials borrowed from other organisms. Although arguably only a short step away from the techniques already practiced in molecular biology

Single Cell Sequencing: The Future of Cancer Care

The advent of oncology therapies acting against molecular targets in pathways inhibiting carcinogenesis has opened new treatment options with greatly reduced toxicities. A recent example is the blocking of the epidermal growth factor signaling pathway by the binding of a monoclonal antibody to the EGF receptor or the inhibition of tyrosine kinase activity in the EGF pathway
