chemistry has been hailed as the biotechnology wonder of the decade.
A way to make millions of chemical compounds in less time and for
less money than it used to take to make a handful, the burgeoning
science is being used by researchers in fields as disparate as fuel
cell technology, semiconductivity and pharmacology.
the forefront of this remarkable late-20th century chemical revolution
is one of the most recent recruits to the UC Davis Health System.
Kit S. Lam, who holds both Ph.D. and M.D. degrees, joined the faculty
as chief of the Division of Hematology/Oncology in June this year.
Along with his special knowledge and experience in the area of drug
development, he brings to the UC Davis Cancer Center a spirit of
optimism, a well of perseverance and a passion for his work that
is rare these days."

White, professor of urology and director of the UC Davis Cancer
Center. "He comes to us with very valuable clinical experience
together with a well-established, unique program in combinatorial
