Cover Story

Originally titled in print: Peeking at 'the Cards You Were Dealt'

James Lupski’s story has all the elements of a good sci-fi tale: a research scientist determined to uncover the cause of his own genetic disease, a friend and colleague who’s also an intrepid gene hunter, and a futuristic technology that not only pinpoints the molecular cause of the research scientist’s disease, but also opens the door to a new era of personalized medicine.

But in this case, it’s not science fiction. It’s science fact.
