Lyon...Pulitzer Prize-Winning Science Writer for The
Lyon is the co-author of Altered Fates: Gene Therapy
and the Retooling of Human Life , perhaps the most-respected
book on "Cloning" and its future impact. He
won a 1987 Pulitzer Prize for his series (with partner
Peter Gorner) on gene therapy. Jeff was the winner of
the 1983 National Headliner Award and is also the author
of Playing God in the Nursery.
Now, less than 5 years after "Dolly" was cloned,
perhaps the greatest scientific achievement of our lifetimes
has occurred and its impact could be revolutionary or frightening.
The Human Genome Project has mapped every gene in the body
and advocates and opponents now embark on a journey where
truly no man has ever gone before. In his program, Jeff covers
both sides of the issue, explaining the upside and the dark
side of this phenomenal accomplishment.
