It’s very interesting to show that, at HCS Pharma, we work on many of the most exciting medical technologies identified by Dr. Bertalan Mesko on his blog, medicalfuturist.com. Of course, precision medicine is the most important for us, because we see here extraordinary tools to treat cancer and neurodegenerative diseases (“instead of canons, we start using sniper rifles.”)
But two other fields seem really promising. The 3D bioprinting for exemple will give us the possibility to create relevant in vitro models of living tissues. We also work to integrate IA deep learning in our HCS processes. It will be a major method to find phenotypic actions of futur drugs.
2016 was a rich year for medical technology. Virtual Reality. Augmented Reality. Smart algorithms analysing wearable data. Amazing technologies arrived in our lives and on the market almost every day. And it will not stop in the coming year.
