The True Revolution in Medicine

The Web Health Awards recognize high-quality digital health resources for consumers and health professionals. Because of the dynamic nature of digital health resources, the Web Health Awards competition is held twice each year: Winter/Spring and Summer/Fall.

In the Winter/Spring 2013 Competition, one of the winners has been Eric Topol MD [Editor-in-Chief of Medscape] and Craig Venter’s [founder and CEO of the J. Craig Venter Institute and Synthetic Genomics Inc and one of the most accomplished scientists of our era] conversation about the True Revolution in Medicine. They both discuss how genomics is reshaping medicine, from sequencing tumors to better diagnose and treat cancer to identify the microbes living within the body and their roles in health and disease, to better ways to make vaccines etc.
