Inside the Bio Revolution
The convergence of science and technology can help address some of humanity’s most pressing problems.
“Health and nutrition are among the most basic needs of societies around the globe. It’s the definition of systemic relevance,” Baumann says. “Based on the converging worlds of genes, cells and data, the Bio Revolution leads to a new foundation for scientific breakthroughs in those areas.”
“As societies, we should dare to ask: ‘What if?’” he says. “What if diseases like Parkinson’s or cancer weren’t diseases we treated, but cured? What if we could create a carbon-positive agricultural system? What if underserved communities had everything they needed to take care of their everyday health?”
