Absent the creation of a personalized, living avatar, computer simulations will go a long way toward helping doctors figure out what to do about your health. Sophisticated models will be able to look at your heart and predict future coronary problems, for instance. Researchers at the University of Pennsylvania are designing new simulations with virtual blood, improving the prospects for this type of tech.

The mechanism to deliver the various cell types to all the right places has yet to be developed.
