William French Anderson (1990)


American physician, geneticist and molecular biologist known as the "Father of Gene Therapy." He graduated from Harvard College in 1958, Trinity College, Cambridge University (England) in 1960, and from Harvard Medical School in 1963. In 1990 he was the first person to succeed in carrying out gene therapy by treating a 4-year-old girl suffering from severe combined immunodeficiency (a disorder called "bubble boy disease").

In 2006, he was convicted of sexual abuse of a minor and in 2007 was sentenced to 14 years in prison. He was released from prison on 17 May 2018 for good behaviour, and is currently serving a 5-year parole.
