What if you could know exactly how food or medication would impact your health — before you put it in your body? Genomics researcher Jun Wang is working to develop digital doppelgangers for real people; they start with genetic code, but they’ll also factor in other kinds of data as well, from food intake to sleep to data collected by a “smart toilet.” With all of this valuable information, Wang hopes to create an engine that will change the way we think about health, both on an individual level and as a collective.
