Louis Kirby is a neurologist who specializes in clinical research for Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease therapeutics. Throughout his life he has always been drawn to writing. While in medical school he published two of his stories, one landing him in hot water with the Dean of Medicine.
He grew up in a suburb of Houston and attended undergraduate at the University of Texas and medical school and residency at UTMB in Galveston, specializing in neurology. He moved to Phoenix to join a medical practice.
He is a co- founder of ZettaScience, LLC a company that plans to index global scientific data to accelerate scientific innovation and discovery. He got his start in research when he was in clinical practice. He founded Pivotal Research Centers, a research facility that specialized in human drug testing and grew Pivotal into one of the nation’s largest medical research centers of its kind. During this time, He served as principal investigator on nearly 400 clinical trials. He gave presentations at national and international conferences on drug development and consulted for the government and the pharmaceutical industry.
After selling Pivotal Research Centers to a publicly held company, he has served in various senior capacities for medical device, diagnostics and pharmaceutical firms. Dr. Kirby currently serves on the scientific advisory boards non-profit and for profit companies.
In his spare time, he enjoys hiking, biking and photography. When he starts a new book, he throws himself into his research and has some interesting encounters, like the time he talked his way into the cockpit of a 747 while it was flying over Greenland. Cool!
Louis enjoys the wide-open skies (and dry heat) of Phoenix with his beautiful wife and daughter.
