(Bio)Tech & IT

Advances in healthcare are strongly driven by information technology and (bio)engineering. We reports on the development of next-gen diagnostic and biotech tools such as CRIPSR and other smart technologies that transform the delivery of care. We also cover the progress of digitalization and the creating of cutting-edge IT solutions – from using big data to predict therapy responses to using blockchain to make sharing of medical data secure.
