Jason Gencher

Jason Gencher is a McGill graduate now studying medicine at The University of Toronto, where, with pen in hand, he continues to defend the sacred hallows of academia from the ever-advancing, nosode-wielding horde of Quacks. Jason has passions for music and science, both of which may be equally matched, if not exceeded by his zeal for reading and writing. He was drawn to the world of science writing because of his compulsive need to debunk pseudoscientific claims, sometimes by trying them out for himself. He rightly enjoys the feeling of 'burning the candle from both ends', as long is it’s not thermal-auricular therapy.
