Dr. Siddhartha Mukherjee, is assistant professor of medicine at Columbia University, physician at Columbia University Medical Center and author of the Pulitzer Prize winning The Emperor of All Maladies: A Biography of Cancer and the recently published The Gene: An Intimate History.  I heard Sid speak at the 10th Annual Future of Genomic Medicine Conference and in this short interview he admits that he is surprised that his books have become so popular with general audiences but that scientists need to talk up to people and assume they can understand more about the implications of genetic breakthroughs.
