Renato
Dulbecco:
AGiant of Cancer Biology
To understand how the Salk Institute became one of the preeminent cancer
research institutions in the world, look no further than the life and work of Nobel
laureate Renato Dulbecco. Dulbecco, who died February 19 at age 97, pioneered
the field of tumor biology, and his interest and talent in mentoring young
investigators greatly influenced the direction that cancer research has since
taken at the Salk and in other world laboratories.
