With personal trainers and tailored suits, why don't we have personalized medicine? Working at the interface of chemistry, biology, and engineering, we are designing strategies with the individual in mind.  But before we get to the patient, we're investigating models of disease to determine how we can better understand disease progression and how we can stop and reverse that disease instead of merely treating the symptoms.  I will tell three stories that are promising in cancer, blindness and stroke.  In each story, I will highlight both the underlying innovation in chemistry, engineering and biology and the opportunities that lay ahead.
