Life Sciences

Recent advances in the Life Sciences industry have opened the door for inventors to accelerate the rate at which they can find new therapeutic molecules; develop new methods of treatment; to create new systems for delivery; to construct new devices for analytics; and to analyze the genome in ways that will allow both the personalization of medicine and the increase in the ease with which to bring gene therapy to market.  With these technological advancements comes the opportunity for economic rewards.
