Radiation-Enhanced Oncogene Expression

Conference paper


“Doctor Hašek will see you now” said the secretary and looked at me over her glasses. The door was open, and in the air there was a pleasant fragrance of aromatic tobacco. In the center of a rather modest office was standing a tall, athletic man in a dark business suit, white shirt and a tie, lighting a pipe. An unusual-looking pipe, with a brier bowl and an aluminum stem. Through the smoke I saw the man’s face with distinctly cut features, an angular jaw, a tanned and relaxed face. He was smiling.
