About this product
- DescriptionCancer research has reached a major turning point, and one is better qualified to explain the past two deacades' dramatic leaps forward in understanding this disease than world-rewned molecular biologist Robert Weinberg, director of the Oncology Research Laboratory at the Whitehead Institute in Cambridge, Massachusetts. In One Renegade Cell, Weinberg presents a state-of-the-art account of how cancer begins and how, one day, it will be cured.
- Author BiographyA Founding Member of Whitehead Institute, Robert A. Weinberg is a pioneer in cancer research most widely known for his discoveries of the first human oncogene--a gene that causes normal cells to form tumors--and the first tumor suppressor gene. Weinberg, who received his PhD in biology from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1969, has held research positions at the Weizmann Institute and the Salk Institute. In 1982, Weinberg helped found Whitehead Institute, joined the faculty as a professor of biology at MIT, and published his landmark paper Mechanism of Activation of a Human Oncogene in the journal Nature. In 1999, another major paper, Creation of Human Tumor Cells with Defined Genetic Elements, was also published in Nature.
