~Sir Muir Grays

The task of consolidating, analyzing and synthesizing information should be high on the 21st century's agenda...

"The appropriate application of what we already know about the diagnosis and treatment of disease will have a far greater impact on quality and safety than any new medical technology likely to be developed in the next decade."

~Sir Muir Grays
