Description

Mentoring Experience: Dr. Knudson did not have much experience with trainees, because most of his work was theoretical. He discusses one meaningful experience with a young woman who asked to work in his lab. At that time, he had just arrived at MD Anderson and had not started to study retinoblastoma. Dr. Knudson says that after he wrote his paper on the two-hit model, he called the woman and invited her to work with him. The woman's name was Louise Strong.

Portrait of Dr. Strong: Dr. Knudson then tells an amusing anecdote about Dr. Strong. He describes the work that they completed together, reviewing the literature on tumors and publishing papers together. Dr. Knudson concludes by saying that he offered Dr. Strong an assistant professor position, which she accepted.
