I am a graduate of Yale College (BA 1957), Oxford University (D.Phil.1961) and the Yale School of Medicine (MD, 1963). I trained in anatomical pathology at Washington University (1963-65), spent a post-doctoral year at Rockefeller University with George Palade, and served in the USPHS at the NIH from1966 to 1972.

I was recruited to Yale by Lewis Thomas in 1972, and a year later was named the Anthony N. Brady Professor of pathology and chair of the department and Pathologist-in-Chief of the Yale New Haven Hospital. In 1991 I became the Director of the Boyer Center for Molecular Medicine. I am a member of the National Academy of Sciences and the Institute of Medicine.
