basic science

also called pure science; a type of research that provides the knowledge and background required for later research into human health problems (known as applied science). In cancer research, basic science is often done in the lab in fields like biochemistry, cell biology, or genetics. It is not aimed directly at treating a specific cancer, but it may be used later as part of the basis for a treatment.
