“Technology is reshaping medicine, making laboratory science a central pillar of patient care. Computers have the potential to analyse problems and provide solutions, at an incomprehensible pace by training machine learning algorithms on complex data. Combine this with the power of multi-disciplinary science means a multitude of insights and intuitions that are far greater than the sum of their parts”
