With the right technology, including tools to treat diseases as well as transformative technology, all of which will be made available to all scientists everywhere, it would mean a drastic reduction in the frequency and severity of global disease


Bearing in mind that scientific breakthroughs are most likely to occur when scientists are free to tackle problems from different angles and in different ways, including providing and facilitate a platform to consolidate various stakeholders, scientists and industry experts to congregate and share cutting edge research to find the right tools to treat diseases, as well as to empower scientists across Asia Pacific, Africa, Middle East, Europe and the region, to make much faster progress towards curing, preventing and managing all diseases. In addition, with a $3 billion fund available to build technology that can speed up research on disease, this will further create greater awareness to mobilize the healthcare industry to enhance data science, technology and building on tools to cure, prevent and manage all diseases, particularly, heart disease, cancer, infectious diseases and neurological diseases. Against this development, World Disease Research Technology, Single Cell Analysis & the $3 billion fund to "Cure, Prevent or Manage all Disease” Conference 2017, brings together world-class scientists a timely platform to come up with better research, including reviewing the substantial potential single cell analysis systems that enable therapeutic discovery, gene editing technology and its potential impacts in treating diseases, transforming cancer treatment, as well as potential tools that could be built, such as machine learning to analyze large databases of cancer genomes or making a chip to diagnose any infectious diseases, in order to address the pressing medical dangers that impact the global community and eventually, to cure, prevent and manage all diseases by next 100 years.
