Why did you want to get into pediatric cancer research?

I was drawn to pediatric oncology for two reasons.  First, the connection that we have with our patients and families is like no other specialty I saw during my training.  Second, the tremendous opportunities for making advances through clinical trials was incredibly appealing.
