Healthcare of the Future: Gene Technologies and Personalized Medicine as an Industry Growth Driver
3 June 2021

The development of gene therapy technologies in medicine is undergoing a rapid surge, and the widespread clinical use of cell and gene technologies in modern medicine has opened up unprecedented possibilities in the battle against diseases once thought to be incurable. Meanwhile, issues surrounding the acceptability of altering the human genome have struck a nerve, raising social and ethical questions regarding interference in human evolution. The development of gene technologies is undoubtedly a matter of national security, and represents great medical progress. However, the need for government mechanisms to protect the rights and freedoms of human beings is clear. Which achievements in the realm of health diagnostic systems, innovative treatment algorithms, and medicines have been driven by the development of gene technologies? What real and prospective applications do gene technologies have in clinical practice? What innovative genetic studies are being conducted in Russia? What diseases could they help prevent in the near future, and what is the future of their development in the healthcare system? What are the possibilities and risks of research in the realm of editing the human genome? What are the prospects for their practical application in medicine?
