Launch of the book “Precision Health”, with the Luxembourg Institute of Health

The Minister of National Education, Childhood and Youth, Claude Meisch, and the chief executive officer of the Luxembourg Institute of Health (LIH), Ulf Nehrbass, presented on October 20, 2022, on the campus of the People’s University in Belval, the book “Precision health”, written by LIH researchers.

Enabling children to discover science and technology and developing their interest in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) is a priority of the Ministry of National Education, Children and Youth. For this reason, the ministry welcomes the publication of the book “Precision health”, which it will distribute in December 2022 to all students in training related to the health professions.

What does the future of healthcare look like?

Will we be treated by doctors or robots?

Will artificial intelligence change the way patients are diagnosed?

The world around us is changing rapidly. Technology is reshaping the way we move and transforming the fields of medicine and biomedical research. This book takes us to the year 2050, where doctors will treat patients based on their digital twins and where health data will be collected by the objects around us. Students will discover how to take part in the healthcare revolution and become a pioneer in precision health.

The researchers of the Luxembourg Institute of Health (LIH), who wrote this book, hope to inspire young people to pursue a professional activity in this fascinating field and encourage them to innovate, to redefine the limits of traditional professions and thus to shape the future of “precision health”.

The book is also available for download in French, English and German on the following site:
