Before a new therapy can be developed, basic research in the laboratory has to be done. Physicists, biochemists and physicians get to the bottom of open questions that determine whether or not a new approach is successful.

In our current special we follow the trail and take a look at techniques and technologies used for research at the smallest scale.
