Title: Knudson, Alfred
Description: Alfred G. Knudson, Jr., M.D., Ph.D., was a visionary geneticist best known for his groundbreaking theory of cancer causation that explained the relationship between hereditary and non-hereditary forms of cancer, and paved the way for the eventual discovery of tumor-suppressor genes. He came to NCI in the late 1990s to help develop the research agenda in cancer genetics across the Institute and its newly formed Division of Cancer Epidemiology and Genetics (DCEG).
