Collaborations across the healthcare community, consisting of academicians, large pharmaceutical companies as well as smaller biotechnology start ups are constantly increasing. This collaborative landscape approach has resulted in the development of several initiatives as well as technological innovations. These technological innovations are rather prominent in the genetic space, with a recent collaboration leading to the development of genome wide association studies across the African American demographic. Genetic technologies have even started to impact nutritional sciences, with the capability of innovative cell culture systems for cultivation of specific nutritional characteristics in food.
