I earned my Ph.D. while working on cystic fibrosis in 2002. I then worked at Children's Hospital Los Angeles on childhood meningitis. When my postdoctoral fellowship ended in 2004, I began teaching and writing science books.

These books are fictional, but based on real experiences I had in graduate school in Montana and later research in California.

I hope you enjoy them and they give you some insight into what it's like to be a medical researcher in a modern microbiology lab.

The End of Illness by David B. Agus
"I read this book with some eagerness, as I’m always glad to hear a whole-systems approach to medicine. However, I ended up being disappointed. I am sure that Dr. Agus is a highly intelligent man who has made strides in his field of oncology, but I..." Read more of this review »
