Meet Georg Klein, cancer researcher who gained his PhD at Karolinska Institutet in 1951. Today, Georg is still active as cancer researcher and has recently received the Distinguished Professor Award at Karolinska Institutet. His research concentrates on why two out of three people do not develop cancer. When he is not engaged in research, he writes essays which largely do not deal with science.
In this film, Georg talks about how he came to Sweden and Karolinska Institutet in 1947. He also talks about the most important meeting during his post graduate studies, with Professor Jack Shultz. During a visit to the USA in 1950 at "The Institute for Cancer Research in Philadelphia", Jack Shultz introduced him to the exciting world of genetics in car journeys to and from the laboratory.
