Description - The Future of Medicine (WIRED guides): How We Will Enjoy Longer, Healthier Lives by James Temperton

The everything-you-need-to-know WIRED guide to the future of medicine and healthcare

By the end of this century, living beyond 100 will be the rule rather than the exception. What medical breakthroughs and new technologies will make this possible?

In this brilliantly wide-ranging, one-stop guide WIRED journalist James Temperton outlines the medical revolutions that are transforming healthcare. He looks at the burgeoning immune therapies that could one day cure such life-threatening diseases as cancer. He explores the science - and ethics - of genetic engineering and its potential to create 'designer babies'. He considers the role that cutting-edge medical research could play in the treatment of mental and neurological disorders ranging from depression to autism. And he addresses the fundamental question- could medical technology become so sophisticated that we witness the end of ageing?
