Our understanding of the human genome is opening up unexplored areas of diseases research in cancer, infectious diseases such as malaria and TB, and common inherited diseases that affect us all such as diabetes and arthritis. These new avenues of research will inform and drive the treatments of tomorrow, changing the way we are all diagnosed and treated in the future.
