George Brewer is a physician and Professor of Human Genetics and Internal Medicine at the University of Michigan Medical School. His research has touched on many diverse fields of medicine and genetics, and led to extensive publications in the medical literature. Recently, he has turned his attention to writing medical thrillers, such as The Bloodcicle Agent, which push a scientific idea a little beyond the envelope of current capability, and then builds a story around these new developments. Besides The Bloodcicle Agent, Dr. Brewer has written two other medical thriller novels, The Death Gene and I.D., and an autobiography, From Start to Finish, which are also published by Xlibris.
