Hope of progress
The hope of progress' is the title of a book of essays  by Peter Medawar, who believed in the contribution of science to human society, and won the Nobel Prize in 1960, with Frank McFarlane Burnet, for fundamental contributions to immunology. We have adopted it as the title for a series of reviews on the contributions of basic biological research to clinical problems, from the quest for new drugs and new drug targets, to new approaches to the understanding of complex disease. 1.
