From Cells to Society: Rethinking Public Policy in a Changing World
Demographic, epidemiological, technological, and environmental changes are taking place around the globe. These global changes are raising new questions and challenges for public policies in a number of areas, from redesigning work and retirement to preventing and treating chronic diseases. This talk will discuss the new role that policy-relevant research must adopt in an era of big data.
