Interview by Frank Lampe and Suzanne Snyder
Nicholas J. Gonzalez, MD, graduated from Brown University, Providence, RI, Phi Beta Kappa, magna cum laude, with a degree in English literature. He later completed his premedical work as a postgraduate student at Columbia University, New York, and received his medical degree from Cornell University Medical College, New York, in 1983. After his internship, he completed fellowship training in immunology under Robert A. Good, PhD, MD, who is considered to be the father of modern immunology. Dr Gonzalez began researching nutritional approaches to cancer while he was a medical student and completed an investigation of the enzyme therapy of cancer while he was an immunology fellow. Currently, Dr Gonzalez and his colleague, Linda Isaacs, MD, run a private practice in New York City, where they see patients and continue their research efforts.
