We reproduce here an article that appeared in Roswell Park’s “RPCI Alumni News” magazine in late 2010, based on an interview with Dr. Pinkel, who by then was retired and living with his family in California.

We proudly republish this article to celebrate Dr. Pinkel’s incredible legacy — for the benefit of those who knew him well as well as those not aware of his outsized influence on the care of kids with cancer.
