The tech titans of Silicon Valley are joining the search for cures. Leading companies such as Google, Apple and Intel are helping refine methods for collecting and analyzing of vast amounts of medical data to assist medical researchers. As the industry devotes its best minds to creating better tools for research, young philanthropists from the tech world are asserting their influence and bringing tech industry ideas and approaches to accelerate medical progress. Could this be a disruptive force in medical research, helping shrink the time and cost of bringing treatments to patients? Can we make Moore's Law work in the search for cures?
