Annual Lectures

Saxon Graham.
  • Remembering Dr. Graham
    There is a great deal of evidence now that diet affects cancer risk. That connection wasn’t obvious, though, in the 1950s, when Buffalo-born researcher L. Saxon Graham began breaking new ground in cancer epidemiology. Over the next half-century, Graham contributed some of the most important research on diet and cancer.
