Solit, MD (2001 YIA, 2002 CDA) of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Cancer discuss how CCF grant funding advanced their cancer research and launched their careers.  Watch this video to learn about their personal connections to oncology, why mentorship is important, and how receiving a CCF grant is a “rite of passage” for many early-career cancer researchers, such as Dr. Janjigian and Dr. Solit.
