The Institute for Systems Biology's Leroy Hood tells MedGadget that his institute is working on several new technologies, including single-cell analysis, targeted mass spectrometry, and family genome sequencing. In addition, he says that patient wellness and personalized medicine are two of the main trends in medicine right now. He later adds that pilot programs are imperative to translate new technologies from the bench to the clinic. "Having been involved in a series of projects that lead to paradigm shifts, such as the Human Genome Project and P4 medicine, I can say that what has persuaded people in all cases has been the clear demonstration of value that can be gained by using the new approach," Hood says.
