Dr. Harold Varmus is as much at home in the world of art and literature as he is in the scientific realm. A PhD candidate in English literature at Harvard University, Varmus discovered he was drawn instead to medicine and eventually found himself at the forefront of cancer research at the University of California, San Francisco. After his work on cancer genes was rewarded with a Nobel Prize shared with his scientific partner, J. Michael Bishop, he served for six years as the Director of the National Institutes of Health; for a decade as President of Memorial Sloan- Kettering Cancer Center; and more recently as co-chair of President Obama’s Science Advisory Board; and now as Director of the National Cancer Institute.
Enjoy Varmus’s unique perspective and his contagious enthusiasm for relaying scientific ideas simply with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres at your hosts’ Mamaroneck Tudor home. Please call for more information.
