Interest in Cancer: Dr. Knudson sketches the development of his interest in cancer. He notes that during medical school, he did not learn about cancer because there was no real treatment for cancer at the time. His interest came through his residency in pediatrics at New York Hospital, where he completed a month-long rotation in the children's cancer unit at Memorial Hospital. Dr. Knudson explains the impact this experience had on him.
