Dr. Alex Berezow joined the American Council on Science and Health as Senior Fellow of Biomedical Science in May 2016. He is a prolific science journalist and the founding editor of RealClearScience. His work regularly appears in BBC News, The Economist, and USA Today, where he serves as a member of the Board of Contributors. He holds a Ph.D. in microbiology. In 2012, with Hank Campbell, he co-authored the book Science Left Behind, which was an environmental policy bestseller. Though he claims humble Midwestern roots and common sense values, in reality, he is often found spending an inordinate amount of money drinking fancy coffees (specifically, triple-shot, iced, vanilla lattes). He is also known to vacation frequently in Europe with his Polish-born wife. Together, they have visited 16 countries.
