Brian Orelli

Somewhere between his graduate thesis on BRCA1, a gene that causes hereditary breast cancer, and his postdoctoral fellowship in DNA repair, Brian realized he enjoyed analyzing other people's data more than running his own experiments. Having gotten his first taste of how to analyze stocks from The Motley Fool many years prior, it was only fitting that he came full circle and started writing about biotech, pharmaceutical, and medical device companies for Fool.com. He also covers the health insurance industry to keep from going into binary-event overload. When not writing at The Motley Fool or trade journals like Nature Biotechnology and BioWorld, Brian can be found coaching soccer or hanging out at the beach in his hometown of San Diego.
