My clinical experiences remind me that cancer is the most complex and daunting problem of our times, one that may not be cured by this generation. I educate the next generation of scientists by teaching them the fundamentals of cancer therapeutics and by supervising them as they test these agents in the laboratory and apply them in the clinic. I strive to provide students the tools to test their hypotheses and the critical thinking skills to generate many more. I motivate these researchers to be optimistic and to tackle the disease in the hope of curing it.
