Biography

Dr. Henry Lynch established Creighton's Hereditary Cancer Prevention Clinic in 1984, an interdisciplinary clinic where families can find information and services related to all hereditary cancers. Dr. Lynch had the idea to look at cancer from a genetics perspective (he postulated that cancer could be hereditary) rather than focusing exclusively from an environmental point of view (which at the time was the only acceptable cause for cancer in the medical circles). This idea became the main focus of his research for years to come. Dr. Lynch developed what are today regarded as the cardinal principles of cancer genetics: early age of onset of the disease, specific pattern of multiple primary cancers, and Mendelian patterns of inheritance in hundreds of extended families worldwide.
