Fox Chase Cancer Center named best place to work in the US for academia researchers

PHILADELPHIA (October 16, 2003) Fox Chase Cancer Center has ranked #1 in The Scientist magazine's "2003 Best Places to Work in Academia" in the U.S. The results are detailed in the article "How They Measure Up: Scientific Institutions" appearing in the October 20, 2003 issue of The Scientist, a magazine for life scientists.

The questionnaire asked respondents to assess their working conditions and environments by indicating their level of agreement with 56 positive statements in 12 different areas. Respondents also indicated which factors were important to them.

To calculate the institutions' overall rankings, The Scientist first weighted each factor based on the percentage of respondents who considered it important. The overall rankings are based on the average score per institution from all respondents on all factors weighted according to their regional importance.

"We are extremely collegial and collaborative, with a can-do attitude. I think that is extremely important," said Anthony Yeung, Ph.D., director of the Fannie E. Rippel Biochemistry and Biotechnology Facility at Fox Chase.

Fox Chase earned high marks for its infrastructure and research resources.

"There's not a lot of bureaucracy at Fox Chase. There's a president, the directors, and the working group heads, an
