Longer Life, Less Disease on Horizon

“In the next 30 years, we’ll see an enormous extension of lifespan because we will eliminate many of the causes of death,” Dr. Leroy Hood told a standing-room-only audience at Biotech 2004 Wednesday. Nanotechnology, microfluidics and other advances will lead to advanced diagnostic instruments that analyze an individual’s genome. A doctor will “prick your finger” and run 10,000 measurements. Today, he said, “you’re lucky if they do 25 measurements.”
