Science Matters

What motivates researchers to spend their lives pursuing answers to difficult questions? For some, it’s the thrill of discovery. For others, it’s the collaborations they form along the way. This 60-second video series provides a window into the work of HMS faculty, highlighting the people behind discoveries that are shaping biomedicine. Researchers explain what they do, why they love it and why it matters.
