Abstract
Biomedical science, world health and world peace are vitally interconnected. World peace is threatened by inequalities around the world in wealth, education and health, and without good health neither the education nor the wealth of general populations can be substantially improved. An international focus on global health requires the active involvement of governments, foundations, pharmaceutical companies and dedicated individuals. In addition, discoveries driven by basic biomedical science provide the basis for powerful novel methods for diagnosing, treating and preventing disease. In this lecture Professor Horvitz will exemplify how basic research in biology can lead to discoveries that promise to provide new approaches to the treatment of disease. He will also advocate that governments allocate a significant portion of their research portfolios to basic research, as without a foundation of rigorous basic research the applied research of a country’s scientists will be neither as critical nor as innovative. Strikingly, it is basic research that most often results in the truly unexpected discoveries that drive novel applications in science and technology.
