Future of Life Sciences

At some point in the next few decades, the capability of technology could outpace that of life. We think of life and technology as being disparate, but they need not be, one path forward is to reengineer life into technology that can keep paces with technological advances. In fact, life and technology are already starting to converge as high impact research findings show in synthetic biology, DNA nanotechnology, nanomedicine, neuroimaging, whole brain simulation and longevity.
