During his training, Dr. Mukherjee began work on a history of cancer, a book that has had an explosive impact on the public perception of cancer and the efforts to treat and control the disease. The Emperor of All Maladies won the Pulitzer Prize in 2011 for its ability to bring science to the public in an engaging and compelling story.
