    Basic Research: The Wind Beneath Innovation’s Wings

    Biomedical research – the science of investigating the mechanisms and causes of disease – has been the driving force for many of the greatest medical advances in history: from drugs like penicillin to fight bacterial infections to medications like insulin to control diabetes. Clinical progress can be achieved because scientists are armed with the knowledge from earlier discoveries that laid the groundwork for today’s progress.
