Description

Administrative Experience: Dr. Knudson outlines how he became dean of the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences. He says that R. Lee Clark asked him to start a genetics program. As soon as he arrived, the plans changed because the medical school was created and would include a genetics program. He states that Clark believed the answer was the graduate school. Dr. Knudson explains that Clark persuaded him to become the dean. He notes the difference between MD Anderson and Stonybrook, where everything moved slowly.
