[Extract] In 1929, Nobel Laureate August Krogh wrote the following on the importance of comparative animal physiology to medicine: "For a large number of problems, there will be some animal of choice, or a few such animals, on which it can be most conveniently studied". The August Krogh principle has as its fundamental core the concept of "seeking unity in diversity" among all life forms. It is a powerful and underserved method of thinking or philosophy that taps into hundreds and millions of years of evolution in nature's own laboratory to foster scientific creativity, discovery, and innovation.
