Why is it important?

University of Oxford Professor of Cardiology Barbara Casadei, Jeremy Pearson, of King's College, London and David Garcia-Dorado, Head of the Department of Cardiology and Director of Vascular Biology and Metabolism Research at the Vall d'Hebron University Hospital & Research Institute of the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona in Spain, discuss what basic science means to them and its wider implications .


This piece should be read alongside the previous article on funding for a fuller appreciation of the context in which basic science exists. Great thoughts from the three professors involved .
