I am a science journalist and author who specializes in covering healthcare, pharmaceuticals and biotechnology. I am the author of Heal: The Vital Role of Dogs in the Search for Cancer Cures (ECW Press 2015) and Selling the Fountain of Youth (Basic Books 2010). My freelance pieces have been published in the New York Times, US News & World Report, More, New Scientist, Entrepreneur.com and other media outlets, and I’m the editor of FierceAnimalHealth. I was previously a senior health writer based out of the New York City headquarters of BusinessWeek, where I wrote hundreds of articles that explored both the science and business of health.
