Foundational research, also called basic research, is actually anything but basic. The curiosity and creativity of scientists doing basic research leads to the knowledge base upon which applied research is built. Foundational research expands the horizons in the life and health sciences, and improves the under- standing of biological phenomena. At HudsonAlpha, foundational research includes studies of natural variation, principles of bioethics and computational biology. The knowledge gained from this research is fundamental to our goal of moving advancements in genomics to improve the human condition.
