Biotechnological development applied to the health field is progressing faster and faster and generates a greater impact on our daily lives. In the short term we are probably not aware but in the long term this is going to mean a total change in how we prevent and cure diseases. In fact, more and more authors agree that the next evolution of Homo Sapiens passes through its union with technology.

If you want to know more about this exciting topic, do not miss this table where we will know at what point in this evolution we are, what advances are happening at the moment or their results are open.
