31 Jan. 2022. The world is changing and so has science. It is thanks to science that it has been possible to enable the changes that have turned the world into the modern world you live in now. It is through science and the discoveries made that have enabled new technologies to be created that have enabled modern medicine and advancements.

Technologies are advancing and this enables new science to be discovered and new technologies such as gene editing to be explored and decentralized clinical trials are now being offered to ensure the best candidacy, more accurate results and for progress to be made.

Why does science always change?

The scientific community is always evolving. They are challenging and questioning previous results to increase their knowledge and gain clearer understandings.

There is always the opportunity for a new discovery to make. It is through new discoveries that what was previously thought to be correct, can be challenged. Not only can it naturally take effect but the development of science can also be encouraged due to social or political needs.

The discoveries made previously were based on the technologies and knowledge that was once available. As time has progressed and technologies have advanced, knowledge has deepened, more studies have been undertaken. Even if the findings are still the same, scientists now are able to delve into more detail and gain further knowledge. They aren’t just seeing a ‘theory’ they are using their tools to test, prove it and measure it.

Additionally, the ability to share information and data is now more profound. Whereby, once it would have to take a lot of time or geographical obstacles, there are now differing methods available to allow scientists to work together and share ideas and findings.

The ability to share findings, work with other specialists and innovate together, is what brings about development within this constantly changing field.

Why is it important for science to continually change?

As technologies advance and new discoveries are made, new illnesses appear and medical mutations arise, there will always be a need for science to continue to change and adapt.

With all natural processes, it changes and with that so is the need for science to change and develop with it.

In addition to natural progress, there is also the ability to enhance knowledge and challenge previous discoveries. Good science is the ability to take something that was once assumed and accept that the hypothesis was wrong and then explore further their new findings and continually work towards finding out the facts.

It is only inevitable. The more knowledge that is gained the more that is sought. As new scientists take different approaches and views there will always be the opportunity for advancement in this field.

Processes can be streamlined, new evidence will be found, medical breakthroughs will happen. With each new step opening multiple doors for further scientific discoveries to take place.

With these area revolving door of new science and natural changes new scientific research and development will always be needed.
