The magnitude, scope, sophistication, and funding support for biomedical
research are unprecedented and continue to increase dramatically. Discoveries
in basic science, especially based on molecular biology and sequencing of
the human genome, have rapidly accelerated and continue to expand. Effective
translation of the new knowledge, mechanisms, and techniques generated by
advances in basic science research into new approaches for prevention, diagnosis,
and treatment of disease is essential for improving health.
