Biotechnologies & Health Enhancement
Biotech promises to boost understanding of our bodies, unravelling the marvels of our brains. Marrying up new knowledge with new technologies could see cutting-edge therapies for cardiorespiratory and neurological diseases, amputees recovering the sense of touch and bionic hands that think for themselves. We could also see new ways of manufacturing biopharmaceuticals.
