ONLINE COVER A scene from Death Valley in the western United States. The barren landscape shown in this photograph serves as a metaphor for the paucity of clinically important developments that have emerged recently from our biomedical research enterprise. In a commentary in this issue, Coller and Califf provide a map for navigating this terrain in the form of essential questions that need to be asked to successfully apply results from basic science research to clinical problems.
