In her interview of Leroy Hood, Singer focuses on the possibilities for personalized medicine in the near future. Hood is used to being tied to projects (like mapping the human genome) that have seen their share of skepticism, but a bright outlook and determination has carried him through to some success. Nanotechnology is just one of three related fields (along with individual genomes and detailed analysis of single cells) that Hood sees as shaping the medical field of the future and bringing the idea of personalized medicine into the realm of possibility.
