Bioscience is producing tools that can streamline and focus the medical innovation process. Drawing on these tools we can and must make seven specific changes of mindset and practice. These are: (1) basing discovery on a molecular taxonomy of disease within a systems understanding of biology; (2) high impact academic-industry partnerships; (3) adaptive and collaborative product development and approval; (4) more creative reward and financing systems; (5) the engineering of faster adoption and better adherence; (6) real world data-driven learning; (7) bringing patients into the decision-making mainstream. Together they have the potential to transform life science translation, from a new approach to discovery, through faster, more targeted therapy development, to a better use of health data. Together these changes spell a new era of precision medicine.
