Introduction Chronology of Significant Events in the Study of Neoplasia

  • Alphonse E. Sirica


The purpose of this chronology is to provide both an historic and a current perspective related to the subject matter detailed in this book. No doubt, some omissions have been made, partly due to oversight, but mostly as a result of limited space. For a more detailed account of many of the earlier discoveries listed here, the reader is referred to the excellent work of Michael B. Shimkin, 1977, Contrary to Nature, U.S. Department of Health, Education and Welfare Publication, Washington, D. C., as well as to the specific references cited for each event.
