Description

Interest in Cancer: Dr. Knudson continues outlining his path towards discovering the two-hit model. He explains that during his time at City of Hope Medical Center, he became more interested in cancer and hereditary predisposition and was asked to write a book on genetics and disease. Dr. Knudson notes that although this work helped him to put the cancer problem in perspective, it was too early for him to discover the two-hit model.

Administrative Experience: Next, Dr. Knudson recalls his frustrations about his slow-moving experience starting a genetics unit at Stonybrook in New York. After three years at Stonybrook, Dr. Knudson accepted an invitation to come to MD Anderson to start a genetics unit.
