Technologies for environmental improvement (sanitation, clean water, bioremediation)
"Current inequities in global health present major ethical challenges to the international community<' says centre director Peter Singer, MD. "Genomics is described as a powerful new wave of health related life sciences energized by the human genome project. This study ranks the most promising tools being created by harnessing this knowledge, offering unprecedented opportunities to address the growing health divide between rich and poor countries."
