I received a B.Sc. and Ph.D. in Molecular Biology with Waclaw Szybalski in McArdle Laboratory at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 1963. I held a postdoctoral fellowship with Richard Franklin at the University of Colorado Medical School, where I became a member of the faculty. My early studies focused on RNA-containing viruses, and led to the identification of the avian sarcoma virus transforming gene product, Src, and characterization of its protein kinase activity. Since the discovery of the protein kinase Src, I have focused my attention on the structure and function of protein kinases that play critical roles in cell proliferation. I am currently American Cancer Society Professor of Cellular and Developmental Biology, in the Department of Molecular and Cellular Biology, Harvard University.
