""Unfortunately, research in the basic sciences can resemble the blind men and the elephant," says Feinberg, referring to the fable in which one man touches a pachyderm's stout leg and assumes the animal is a pillar; another, the muscular trunk, and thinks snake-and so on. "That's why we are very excited Sean Taverna has joined this Center, the vision for which is for researchers to ask questions and share ideas about basic research from all different angles, as well as to collaborate on experiments and grant-writing."
