Welcome To The Wonder-full World of
Medical (and other) Ignorance!
Questions, Questioning, and Questioners (Q³)


"Curiosity For All" is the first in a series of videos about the thinking and motivations that fuel scientific research. Presented by top bio-medical researchers including a Nobel Laureate, the piece is inter-cut with scenes from science and nature which help communicate the thrill of discovery.

The greatest single achievement of science in this most scientifically productive of centuries is the discovery that we are profoundly ignorant. We know very little about nature, and we understand even less. I wish there was some formal courses in medical school on medical ignorance, textbooks as well , although they would have to be very heavy volumes.
