researcher who works at the most basic level of science to elucidate
how certain genes trigger particular cells to grow out of control
and become what we know as cancer.
labs, hallways, storage spaces and office carrels await the arrival
of his research team and the extraordinary equipment that today's
cutting-edge researchers use in their perennial quest for the elusive.
Kung's flashing eyes and infectious smile suggest the excitement
that will fill these spaces with the work he envisions doing here.
