Basic research is the basis of medical discovery. Through it, we learn fundamental biological, molecular, and chemical information about life and disease that could be ultimately translated into clinical benefits. Training of future translational scientists is, thus, critical for the advance of the medicine. Importantly, basic science/translational studies have unique challenges inherent in this type of investigation.
