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.
