Vaccines to prevent public health epidemics such as Ebola and meningococcal B get fast-tracked for approval so patients can receive them earlier.
Genetic profiling of patients better matches them to clinical trials, which increases their chance of benefiting from research studies.
CRISPR is a therapy in which the human genome is altered in an effort to eliminate genetic-based disease.
A self-sustainable processor turns solid waste and sewer sludge into safe drinking water for hundreds of thousands of people.
A non-invasive diagnostic test has a tenfold better chance of diagnosing Down’s syndrome in a fetus.

Sensors pick up neural codes sent by the brain and send them to computers to be deciphered and used to operate prosthetic limbs.
Devices that allow health care providers to monitor patients from afar — such as needle-free glucose monitoring, which uses biosensors on the skin to collect information on glucose levels.
A new device, used alongside standard tPA treatment for stroke, removes clots and results in speedier recovery for patients and a better chance for independence.
