Duncan Fisher earned a doctorate at Yale University in 1992 and taught college and published in the humanities for a number of years thereafter. Following widening interests, he then went back to school, for biomedical science training at the University of Pennsylvania. From there he went on to take over a post-doctoral pathology training program in Philadelphia, acting as dean of students in the unit, and also serving as managing editor of the medical journal produced there.
Working in this dual capacity he found his passion, which was to combine academic publishing with practical content of immediate use to clinicians, and more importantly, their patients.
Duncan finally moved into the medical communications industry, with the sole desire of delivering more and better end-user outreach content across the whole healthcare spectrum. His heartfelt concern is for patients, particularly the ones without medical or scientific backgrounds, who need medical information, and who need it clear and complete.
He has been working on this ever since. He still lectures at college, in scientific method and science communications, but his professional mission is to produce life-improving content for patients, and their physicians, and the research bodies and commercial interests that all serve them.
