Where We Are on the War on Cancer “Mukherjee [has] a rightful place alongside Carl Sagan, Stephen Jay Gould, and Stephen Hawking in the pantheon of our epoch’s great explicators.” Boston Globe Physician, researcher and award-winning science writer, Siddhartha Mukherjee examines cancer with a cellular biologist’s precision, a historian’s perspective, and a biographer’s passion. Currently the Assistant Professor of Medicine at Columbia University and staff physician at Columbia University Medical Center, Mukherjee is also the 2010 author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning book The Emperor of All Maladies: A Biography of Cancer, in which he chronicles the history of cancer and illuminates its implications on the human race throughout the centuries. Presented as part of the Critical Issues in America Series “Speculative Futures: Risk, Uncertainty, and Security” Books will be available for purchase and signing

Generously supported by an anonymous gift to the Cancer Center of Santa Barbara
