Looking to the future of health
We have a special interest in genomics, but there are other technologies that could change the way we manage our health
We want people to enjoy all the benefits of science and technology for health. As part of that, we always keep one eye on the horizon, looking ahead to what the next potential game changer is.
We have a special interest in genomics, but there are other technologies that have the potential to change the way in which we manage our health and treat disease. Keeping ahead of biomedical developments allows us to identify the policy issues that need to be addressed for effective uptake of new technologies in health services.
Through scientific research and analysis, we can provide practical insights and advice to policymakers, health systems and professionals. And as a multidisciplinary organisation we can look beyond the science to consider regulatory challenges, ethics and the realities of implementation.
Our policy briefings and explainers offer clarity on emerging technologies, concepts and issues, and are freely available to download.
