“Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known.”-Dr. Carl Sagan; and what could be more incredible than the mysteries of the human body, waiting to be unveiled by men of science. Without research, medical science would still be all about herbs and supernatural powers. It’s this thirst for the unknown that pushes us to unravel and dive into the unfathomable depths of God’s most curious creation, His Grand Design-The human body.
