Health and Well-Being

Bioinformatics, synthetic biology, biomedicine, personalized medicine

Innovation in computing continues to yield dramatic productivity benefits to individuals, organizations, and societies, and nowhere is this more evident than in the potential of computing to improve dramatically the health and well-being of millions worldwide. Efforts to accomplish this far-reaching goal take many forms, including assisted cognition, tools for bioinformatics, synthetic biology, biomedicine, the confluence of mobile devices and healthcare, and personalized medicine.
