The past decade has witnessed ever-increasing advances in innovative medical technologies including gene-editing, robotic surgery, novel pharmaceuticals, 3-D bio-printing and other forms of personalized medicine. One recent example that made headlines is the CRISPR genomic-editing technique, which Science magazine called the “breakthrough of the year” in 2015, identifying it as one of the most important tools invented in the past century. Such innovations have the potential for vastly improving human health and medical care in ways unimaginable in the not too distant past, through tissue-based treatments for cancer and other diseases, the growth and transplantation of animal organs, and repairing genetic defects in embryos.
