via Walter Jessen . Alfred Nobel was born on this day, in 1833
President Clinton declared Oct 21 to be National Biomedical Research Day -as is every day, for me 🙂 He said, “There is an intriguing quality to biomedical research: A discovery does not always predict its future uses. As a consequence, it is essential that the Nation continue to champion broad-based studies of both the normal and the disease processes. These studies will yield a fundamental understanding of biological systems and will provide us with the foundation of knowledge needed to ensure successful responses to current and future health problems.”
Cheers! to that sentiment!
