This is the solution provided by Avilon Intelligence, a Taiwan-based startup that won third place in Qualcomm Taiwan Innovation Challenge in 2021.
Global tech companies are expected to concentrate on the development of augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) technologies in 2022, in the hope of using them to launch metaverse projects in the future, according to industry observers.
The completion of the human genome sequencing project has opened up new opportunities for drug development. Some diseases that were once difficult to cure can now be treated with targeted drugs. However, targeted drugs are only suitable for patients with specific genes. Furthermore, there are still no suitable drug treatment options available for patients with cancer or other special diseases. This has made cellular medicine a popular global research focus. Despite the fact that many companies are investing in cellular drug development and that cell drug clinical trial designs are largely identical to traditional clinical drugs, the lack of accurate and rapid pre-clinical cellular pharmacokinetic validation had made it impossible to confirm the safety, efficacy, and traceability of developed cell drugs, thus greatly slowing down the development of this new generation of therapeutic methods.
