Artificial intelligence, robotics, 3D printing, organs-on-chips, and bioprinting open new horizons for pharma. Let’s peek into the future of drug production with a short story of Brian Mahony and read about what we need to reach such a future in The Medical Futurist’s latest e-book entitled Technologies Shaping the Future of Pharma.

Blockchain already earned the buzzword of the year award, so it is high time to address the elephant in the room. Is it really there? If it is, will it really change everything? How will it impact healthcare?

A new digital pain reduction kit was designed in a partnership between Samsung Health, the German pharma giant, Bayer, healthcare start-up appliedVR, the Travelers insurance company and the Cedars Sinai Medical Center, announced Dr. Brennan Spiegel. The set will be tested in a randomized trial to reduce opioids and speed up the return to work […]

What Could CRISPR Do Tomorrow?

CRISPR is the newest, most efficient and most accurate method to edit a cell’s genome. We have to understand it and prepare for the medical revolution it brings upon us, so here I summarized everything to know about this genome editing method from DNA-scissors to currently unimaginable possibilities, such as having an army of gene-edited soldiers. Here, let me show you the myriad of wonderful opportunities as well as the frightening ethical challenges what the CRISPR/Cas9 gene editing method could bring into healthcare in the future.
