Can you help me with English please?

Experiments using gene therapy represent a giant step into the medicine of the future.

1. What does this word "step" mean in this sense?

2. What does this expression "the medicine of the future" mean exactly?

Thank you.

    'Step' in this case means advance.  A giant advance, a giant step of progress.  'Medicine of the future' means the way medical science and practice will be in the future (which we expect will be more advanced than it is now).
