Title: Todaro, George
Description: While at the National Cancer Institute, George Todaro, M.D., established the NIH 3T3 cell line, which became a mainstay of cell biology research. He also, with Robert Huebner, M.D., articulated the oncogene hypothesis in 1969, which proposed that the human genome contained information (oncogenes) that would allow certain viruses to turn normal cells into cancer cells.
