Canadians live longer, healthier lives than ever before, thanks in large part to advances in nutrition, medicine, preventive health care and other research-driven areas. The improvements aren’t finished yet – and with the human death rate holding steady at 100 percent, they probably never will be. Ontario university researchers are already thinking about the next wave of knowledge that could improve the health of individuals and societies.

Personalized medicine, gene therapy, brain scans and prosthetic limbs created on a 3D printer. The technologies, treatments and infrastructure that can help keep us healthy  is undergoing a revolution, thanks to wave after wave of massive new data, and new ways to make sense of it all. As quality and length of life both improve, it might even be that one day, university researchers change that death rate, by challenging the very inevitability of mortality.
