Genetic Linkage

Spring 2014 Talks on "The Forever Fix" and Gene Therapy

After a whirlwind of speaking at teachers' conferences this fall, in the springtime my audience will be high school students. I will be giving 4 keynote addresses for the New York State Student Convocation, for the March of Dimes. The talk is "Gene Therapy: A Forever Fix," which will coincide with a feature article I've written for Scientific American (print), March issue. The talk is based on my book, The Forever Fix: Gene Therapy and the Boy Who Saved It."

The paperback version has an Instructor's Guide at the end, which is also posted on this website, beneath a handout for a classroom activity I've developed called "Putting a Face on Genetics."

Also check out my series on a clinic for genetic diseases among the Amish and Mennonites at my DNA Science blog at Public Library of Science (http://blogs.plos.org/dnascience/)

The March of Dimes talks will be held at:

Hyde Park March 18
NYU March 26
Syracuse April 2
Staten Island April 24

I will post more details as I get them, or feel free to email me (rickilewis54@gmail.com)

My blog is "DNA Science" at Public Library of Science

Hi everyone! Since last fall I've been blogging for Public Library of Science , at http://blogs.plos.org/dnascience/.

As you can see, I gave up cross-posting here on July 4 because through this site (Author's Guild) I have to type in all the html code, whereas PLOS uses an easy wordpress template. I got lazy. But not about blogging! So check out DNA Science at Public Library of Science. A new post every week, and I'm open to ideas and guest bloggers.

I always try to write about what everyone else misses.
