The last 50 years has seen an explosion of data, from the human genome to brain imaging and electronic patient records that has changed the paradigm of how we approach human health. Precision medicine is one example. During the next 30 years, this data revolution will only speed up and will require new mathematical and quantitative paradigms to harness it. This panel discussion brings together experts from industry and government to discuss the development of a roadmap for the mathematical and computational sciences in the service of medicine and human health. This roadmap will identify long-term needs for human health and the mathematical tools to meet those needs, as well as the required human resources, research funding, and research infrastructure. It can provide the basis for concerted research efforts, new funding opportunities, and new training paradigms.
