Project aims to redefine health

Emory University and Georgia Tech will launch a multiyear, multimillion-dollar project today to remake U.S. health care - a bold effort that plays to the schools' strengths in biomedical and engineering research but carries wide ethical, legal and economic complications.

The project, dubbed the Predictive Health Initiative, combines genetics, nanotechnology, information technology and cutting-edge patient care into a new type of medicine that aims to stop disease before it starts.
