The Convergence of the Life Sciences, Physical Sciences, and Engineering
A new model for scientific research known as 'convergence' offers the potential for revolutionary advances in biomedicine and other areas of science, according to this white paper by 12 leading MIT researchers. The white paper says that one should capitalize on the trend of convergence - which involves the merger of life, physical and engineering sciences - to foster the innovation necessary to meet the growing demand for accessible, affordable health care.
