How Advances in Science Are Made
Nobel Laureate 1996, Stanford University
It is seldom the case that one can anticipate where
great breakthroughs in science will occur, and even harder to anticipate
where these breakthroughs will find applications to benefit mankind. In
this talk the speaker will trace the development of NMR as an example of a
development for which the applications were not at all obvious, and then
describe a number of discoveries and the research strategies that allowed
them to be made. Finally, he will conclude with a few remarks about how
this nation must support science in order to meet the great challenges
facing us in the 21st Century.
