Dr. Suresh Garimella, Executive Vice President for Research and Partnerships at Purdue University, and a member of the Indiana Biosciences Research Institute's Scientific Advisory Board writes about the importance of scientific research in everyday life in the Lafayette Journal and Courier:

"Every day, all of us in Indiana and the nation enjoy thousands of the benefits of scientific research, although it is easy to take these advances for granted.
