About

Professor Lipsick’s career as a poet went astray when he found a job at the unemployment office working in a laboratory, fell in love with research, and eventually became obsessed with understanding how mistakes in our own genes cause cancer.  He is a professor of Pathology, Genetics, and Biology.
