Spotlight on Scientists
NCI-supported cancer researchers and scientists—working in medical research institutions and laboratories across the United States and on the National Institutes of Health (NIH) campuses in Maryland—drive the science that leads to progress against cancer and improves the lives of people affected by cancer.
These articles put a face to some of the thousands of individuals who contribute to NCI’s cancer research efforts. The profiles highlight the work of scientists and clinicians and describe the circumstances and motivation behind their work.
NCI-supported scientists explain key aspects of basic and clinical cancer research; describe how and why they became cancer researchers, with advice for students; and offer their perspectives on a range of challenges and achievements in cancer research.
Learn how these investigators' projects aim to break new ground in biomedical, behavioral, and clinical cancer research.
