We’ve watched medical technology shrink and become less invasive. Now, imagine if we could bring that kind of progress to your doctor’s office. Instead of waiting for ages for an appointment, you’ll get examined through your cellphone. Your doctor will be able to predict what side effects you’ll suffer. And the R & D pathway will become much shorter because researchers will be able to do clinical trials in petri dishes.

The future of medicine is personalized. Instead of a one size fits all approach, precision medicine will take into account your own genetic makeup and the environment that surrounds you — and come up with bespoke treatment. In this installment of PredicTED, we take you beyond a waiting room and into the rad new world of medicine.

Who will diagnose you?
