Gillian Geffin

Course Leader Bio

I have degrees in physiology and medicine from the University of London, ran a research laboratory at the M.G.H., and taught research fellows and medical students. We came to Boston for just one year in 1965 for my husband to get his BTA degree (Been to America)—to support promotion to consultant in the NHS, but enjoyed living here so much that we have stayed. My teaching at LLAIC and BOLLI at Brandeis includes science and technology courses with my husband Bennie, genetics courses, and contributions to other science courses. I taught a shorter version of this Lifespan course at LLAIC last fall; the second version should be better! Of course, when you teach, you learn—and teaching at LLAIC is enjoyable, challenging—and sometimes a little intimidating. Class members are welcome to call me at home with questions..
