The next 25 years will see large-scale changes across the spectrum of biomedical research and development activities. Dramatic advances are likely to include fundamental knowledge of disease processes, as well as a variety of new research tools. These are early days for genomics, proteomics, nanotechnology and bioinformatics. What might this research and development achieve over 25 years? This question is important because answers can chart the future path of science and help the public understand the crucial need to support biomedical R&D.
The Institute for Alternative Futures (IAF), with funding from Pfizer, will study the future of research and development with selected science leaders across many disciplines, sectors and institutions. As the project progresses, look to this web site to bring you are latest insights into the future of biomedical R&D.
