Dr. Patrick Lynch grew up in a Lynch syndrome family...not one afflicted with Lynch syndrome but in one that was passionately dedicated toward research and treatment of those with Lynch syndrome. As the son of Dr. Henry Lynch, he was exposed to the long hours of research his father performed, trying to solve the mysteries of inherited cancer.  The family made great sacrifices on our behalf. Following graduation from high school, the very last thing Dr. Patrick Lynch wished to do was to follow in the footsteps of his parents, Henry and Jane Lynch, and enter into the medical field.  He knew how demanding it could be. As well, true to the tradition of his family, he had a passion of his own, that toward dedicating his life toward a career which would enhance the quality of life of others.  He chose to be an environmental attorney and attended law school. Following becoming disenchanted during a short career in environmental law, he spent a summer working with his father where developed the infectious passion of his parents in researching hereditary cancers. He determined to attend medical school, graduating from Creighton University School of Medicine in 1983 and completing an internship and residency at the University of Arkansas, in Medical Sciences. Following was participation in a clinical fellowship in Gastroenterology at Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, Texas.  Today, he can be found at MD Anderson, one of the largest and finest cancer research institutions in the world, as their top Lynch syndrome expert or in the Halls of the National Institute of Health, where he sits on the editing Board for their publications.   Dr. Lynch is a noted researcher, a medical treatment professional and an educator.  His contributions to the research and treatment of Lynch syndrome are invaluable.     We are extremely pleased to have him as a member of our Medical Advisory Board.  His candid and passionate manner and dedication toward those with Lynch syndrome is appreciated and we are very grateful to him for his dedication and efforts in improving the quality and longevity of life for those with Lynch syndrome.
