A completely personal list of areas and topics that are on my risk science radar for 2013. What have I missed? Please include in the comments below!

On the list:

Big Data (including high throughput screening, genetic screening, personalized risk profiles, personalized medicine, risk prediction and safety by design)

C-Health (Cloud Health, including mobile apps, distributed data collection, ubiquitous sensors, personalized exposure and risk reports)

Responsible Innovation (including advanced manufacturing, synthetic biology, sophisticated materials and 3D printing)

“Headology” (including risk perception, risk communication, individual and group dynamics, evaluating risk-risk and risk-benefit tradeoffs)

Complex interactions (including low dose effects, chronic exposure, non-linearity in dose-response, hormone-like behavior, epigenetics and synergistic interactions)
