Some of the greatest advances that we've made medically emerge from the laboratories that constitute the Sloan Kettering Institute.

This entire community is working together to try to solve the problem of cancer. And that collective mission is why this is an amazing place to study cancer.

What attracted me to SKI was the ability to use clinical samples because we're connected to the hospital, so we can get a lot of clinical samples to use for research in the lab. And it's also a great research environment.

It's literally a one stop shop for being able to cross boundaries from very basic research and go straight to clinical translation of the research that you do.

This is a really exciting place to be.

That's one of the things of being a scientist, is that you get to try new things every day.

We have people with diverse backgrounds, diverse interests, diverse ideas that SKI brings together to exchange ideas and to develop new ideas that really push science forward.

If you want to come to a place with the most innovative researchers, the most passionate intellectuals, then you definitely want to come to Sloan Kettering Institute.

We have amazing technology here at Sloan Kettering and a top notch instrumentation. All the forefront instruments that you need to support your research.

I think first and foremost, the culture of SKI really encourages being interactive.

The small size of the Institute is actually really important. It makes it possible for us to know all of our colleagues and have an idea of what they're working on.

We can go one floor upstairs, can find an immunologist that is the leading scientist in that field. So there is access to a lot of knowledge, and people are very happy to help.

And when you bring different scientists together, you can really start to undergo transformative science.

To me personally, training and mentoring the next generation of scientists means everything.

The Sloan Kettering Institute is really aimed at trying to get its trainees ready to move on and have an impact in whatever aspect of science that they decide to pursue.

There are also ways to forge collaboration with people at other institutions.

Being a part of the Tri-I with Rockefeller University and Weill Cornell, we have the ability to collaborate with researchers that are just across the street.

Something that's exciting about New York is there is something for everybody. And so to have an institute at the level of SKI in a city that has such great opportunities is really incomparable.

You'll find yourself surrounded by everything that it takes to do the best science there is. The talents, the technology, the infrastructure.

SKI is a unique launchpad for your career in science.

SKI is a world class Institute to do translational research with direct impact on patient care.

SKI is an outstanding place to get trained by some of the best researchers in the world.

SKI is the place to be if you want to do the best cancer science.
