Meet the Author

Ricki Lewis has built an eclectic career in communicating the excitement of genetics

and genomics. She earned her Ph.D. in genetics in 1980 from Indiana University.

It was the dawn of the modern biotechnology era, which Ricki chronicled in many

magazines and journals. She published one of the first articles on DNA fingerprinting

in Discover magazine in 1988, and a decade later one of the first articles on human

stem cells in The Scientist.

Ricki has taught a variety of life science courses at Miami University, the University

at Albany, Empire State College, and community colleges. She has authored or

co-authored several university-level textbooks and is the author of The Forever Fix:

Gene Therapy and the Boy Who Saved It, as well as an essay collection and a novel .

Ricki has been a genetic counselor for a private medical practice since 1984 and is

a frequent public speaker. Since 2012, Ricki has written hundreds of news stories

for Medscape Medical News, articles for Scientific American and for several genetic

disease organizations, and originated and writes the popular weekly DNA Science

blog at Public Library of Science.
