The Harvard Medical School Research subseries includes laboratory notebooks from Watson's time at Harvard. In 1956 Watson joined the faculty at Harvard University to teach courses in Zoology. From 1958 to 1961, he conducted additional laboratory research Harvard Medical School. This focused research consisted of experiments done with viruses believed to cause cancer, such as the Papilloma virus. After this research Watson's attention turned to messenger RNA, and not until he returned to Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, did his interest in pursuing the viral causes of cancer resume.
