Exchange Exemplar: Siddhartha Mukherjee On Genes


Talk about dedication: Siddhartha Mukherjee works to defeat cancer in his own medical career, teaches students in medical school, and writes books about the subjects. 

He won a Pulitzer prize for his book on cancer, The Emperor of All Maladies.  And he followed that with a look at how human genetics get intertwined with cancer and a lot of other conditions in The Gene: An Intimate History.  The good doctor joined us for each of those books; we revisit our 2016 interview on The Gene here.
