Benefits of Biomedical Research
Research in the biomedical sciences has generated a wealth of new discoveries that are improving our health, extending our lives and raising our standard of living. In order to assess this progress and realize the full potential presented by these breakthroughs in medical research, it is essential that this information about recent accomplishments, current efforts and future opportunities reach a broad audience of interested citizens and policy makers.
In summarizing these advances, however, it is necessary to consider the information needs of various groups. To assist people seeking information about progress in biomedical research, the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB) has identified some authoritative sources of information on disease burden, cost of illness, promising scientific, improvements in longevity, and economic benefits of research.
