After spending much of his youth in Liverpool’s Catholic seminary training for the priesthood, Boys of the Cloth author Vincent J. Miles embarked on a very different career path as a molecular biologist and biotechnology executive. He holds B.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees from University College London and is currently a venture capitalist in the Boston area.
