At Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, basic, translational, clinical, and population sciences research are never far apart - physically or philosophically. Research undertaken to answer basic biological questions, while recognizing the inherent value of empirical efforts to expand knowledge, requires an environment in which free, interest-fueled inquiry is encouraged. Dana-Farber's success in creating such an environment is reflected in the countless advances in the understanding of cellular and systemic processes that have occurred in their laboratories. The commitment to curiosity-driven research remains undiminished even as the Institute integrates basic, translational, clinical, and population sciences research into a well-functioning transmission system for scientific progress against cancer.
