Need to consult a clinical pathologist in Tokyo? Trying to contact
a particular urologic oncologist in Milwaukee? Looking for an
epidemiologist on the Internet? The Cancer Fax Directory
may be the best place to start your search.
First produced in 1990, this unique reference provides more than
14,500 fax numbers, addresses, telephone numbers, and, where available,
e-mail addresses of prominent oncologists, hematologists, and
cancer researchers from around the world.
Now in its third edition, the Cancer Fax Directory is published
by AlphaMed Press with support from the Hipple Cancer Research
Center. As the publishers write in an introductory note, the book
is "dedicated to enhancing communications among physicians
and researchers, and thereby helping to quicken the pace of cancer
research progress worldwide."
With more than 600 pages, the spiral-bound 1995 directory is 62%
larger than the book's last update, which came out in 1992. A
Geographical Index of Participants organizes entries by country
and, in the United States, by state, while a Specialties Index
offers an alternative means of finding participants.
A section of US National Cancer Institute listings has been expanded
to include departments, and a section on Editorial Offices of
Key Journals and Scientific Organizations provides the names and
numbers needed to reach a selection of biomedical journal editorial
Finally, a section of Selected Granting Agencies includes not
only foundations and cancer funds but also numerous organizations
that offer patient information and support.
With all listings presented in a clear format, the volume also
provides easy instructions for international fax transmissions
and updated dialing codes for all countries and major cities.
