Alfred George Knudson, honorary doctor 2000 - The University of Oslo (344 words)
Using complex genetic analyses, Professor Knudson proposed that children who inherited RB must be born with one defect, or mutation, already in the germ-line and must later acquire a second, tumor - activating defect.
Later, Professor Knudson focused his hypothesis on the RB gene itself as well as other genes involved in different cancer syndromes like Wilm's tumor and renal cell carcinomas using the Eker rat, a perfect model for hereditary renal cell carcinoma, developed by Reidar Eker at the Norwegian Radium Hospital.
Professor Knudson’s theory was that each hit must arise in one of the two copies of the gene involved, suggesting that both copies of the gene must be inactivated for a tumor to form.
