ABSTRACT: The greatest challenge facing medicine today involves the so-called non-communicable diseases (NCDs). This is true regardless of whether one’s location is considered high-income, middle-income, or low-income. Basic research at all “OMICs” system levels will be significant in uncovering causal links that create NCD vulnerabilities in mind, brain, body, and society. Therefore, meeting this 21st century challenge by improving NCD management and prevention around the world will rely on advancement in this type of basic research.
