I’m a scientist and academic administrator, having held positions at Harvard Medical School and Boston University as professor, department chair, and associate dean. In addition to over 100 scientific papers, I’ve written two textbooks and one general audience book on cancer as well as a cell biology text, The Cell.

My first novel, The Prize, is an award-winning medical thriller based on a case of fraud, deceit and violence growing out of the discovery of a treatment for Alzheimer’s disease. In The Prize, I’ve brought my experience in the world of medical research to life in a tale of scientists who betray the fundamental values of their profession.
