Runtime

Larry Norton, Deputy Physician-in-Chief for Breast Cancer Programs, and Charles Sawyers, Chair of the Human Oncology and Pathogenesis Program, describe the strengths of Memorial Sloan Kettering as a place to conduct basic-science and clinical research. Clinical investigators work closely with investigators in basic science to conduct translational research that has the potential to advance discovery and benefit patients. The physical proximity of basic-science and clinical researchers to one another, and the mutual respect evident in the working relationships of the two, help to encourage the rapid translation of laboratory findings to the clinic.
