Work in physiological fluid dynamics needs very close and intimate collaboration between specialists in physiological science and specialists in the dynamics of fluids. The necessary collaboration has to be preceded by a process of mutual education sufficiently prolonged to bring about on each side an adequate understanding of the other side’s language and modes of expression, as well as recognition of which are the main areas where the other discipline has developed a particularly extensive and intricate body of knowledge and skills which can be called upon when required. After this, real communication between the different specialism becomes possible, and can lead to effective research progress.
