Making Progress: Does Clinical Research Lead to Breakthroughs in Basic Biomedical Sciences?
Description:
In this article, Gershon uses two "basic scientific breakthroughs," one of which is Avery, MacLeod and McCarty's discovery that DNA was genetic material, which stemmed from Avery's research on pneumonia, to demonstrate the falsity of the assumption that breakthroughs in biological research result only from basic science and research and not applied clinical research.
