The collective advances of medical science can be tailored to an individual's DNA-- saving lives and curing once fatal diseases. Because of our modern knowledge of the human genome, personalized medicine is helping prevent diseases and manage others. The power of DNA could soon be used to treat and manage diseases, like cancer, as chronic conditions instead of fatal ones.
The Atlantic convened an in-depth exploration of the future of genomic medicine. What innovations are on the horizon to better predict and prevent disease?
