Chips, Clones, and Living Beyond 100: Ho... > 7. Wildcards for the future

7. Wildcards for the future

Thus far, we have described the biosciences as they relate to healthcare, examined their relationships to other industries such as information technology, and reviewed the current business segments through which the biosciences are commercialized. We have also discussed the stresses on healthcare systems around the world. We now turn an eye to the future, looking out to about 2025. This year is more than just an arbitrary marker of a quarter century; it represents a time period that is especially relevant to us and our children. It also falls within the planning horizon of public and private organizations that will help shape the future. Yet 2025 is long enough to move our thinking about the biosciences beyond just incremental change.
