Abstract

The field of cancer biology has recently come of age, as witnessed by the initiation of this Annual Reviews journal this year. In this article, I argue that the major sources of cancer biology reside neither in cell biology nor in traditional cancer research, but instead in the domain once called “tumor virology.” Speaking from the perspective of someone who “rode the wave” that uncovered cancer genes and their effects on cell behavior, I have tried to trace the influences, discoveries, and changing attitudes and practices that produced the vibrant scientific landscape that we now enjoy.
