KEVIN DAVIES PhD
Editor, Author, and Public Speaker in New York
Geneticist by training, I'm the founding editor of Nature Genetics and Bio-IT World; and former Editor-in-Chief of Cell Press. In 2018 I led the launch of The CRISPR Journal as Executive Editor.
I received a Guggenheim Fellowship in 2017 to work on a new book on CRISPR and genome editing. I'm the author of 4 books:
CRACKING THE GENOME (Free Press, 2001) -- published in the UK as THE SEQUENCE and translated into 15 languages;
BREAKTHROUGH (1995, co-authored with the late Michael White); the race to discover the BRCA1 breast cancer gene.
I'm also co-author of DNA: The Story of the Genetics Revolution, with Jim Watson and Andrew Berry (2017, Knopf).
I served as the technical consultant on the 2014 film Decoding Annie Parker, starring Helen Hunt and Samantha Morton. (I'm in the credits, right under Aaron Paul's guitar coach.)
Most recently I served as Vice President of Business Development at the American Chemical Society -- the world's largest scientific society -- and Publisher of C&EN (Chemical & Engineering News).
I'm represented by Jen Gates at Aevitas Creative and for speaking engagements by the Harry Walker Speakers bureau.
