Which Are Our Next Questions?
Costa, Manuel Joao
Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, v41 n2 p110-111 Mar-Apr 2013
The importance of posing the best questions in research studies in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (BMB) is undisputed. Researchers may spend long hours reflecting and discussing with colleagues how to improve a certain question they have in mind. The best questions are always original, grounded in the existing literature and feasible to be explored under the local research circumstances (financial, technical, and expertise). The best questions catapult the advancement of science and lead to discoveries that are reported in the finest scientific journals. The best questions are communality, in the sense that they would be recognized as such by peers. In any point in history all scientific cultures have their menu of "next best questions" to be answered. Why not Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education? In this article, the author argues that there is not a clear menu of "next questions" in student centered education in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education (BAMBED) and that it is important to develop one as soon as possible.
