Discovery is a core component of who we are, from our earliest days as a young child. Discovery remains a key human endeavor in our adult lives as we discover and learn new things that allow us to adapt to the ever-changing and highly technical world of today. In medicine, the phenomenon of discovery allows us to invent new approaches and continually improve the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of disease. The perennial desire to improve patient care depends on the foundation of discovery.
