Little Atoms Road Trip 26 – Misha Angrist

Posted on November 17, 2012 by


While passing through North Carolina, Neil paid a visit to Duke University in Durham, and spent a great afternoon talking to geneticist Misha Angrist. Misha Angrist is an assistant professor at the Duke University Institute for Genomic Sciences and Policy. His doctoral and postdoctoral work was in human genetics, and he was formerly a board-eligible genetic counselor. Misha also writes fiction, which has appeared in numerous literary journals. In 2007, Misha Angrist became the fourth subject in George Church’s ambitious Personal Genome Project, and he wrote a book, Here is a Human Being: At the Dawn of Personal Genomics, about that experience.
