Dr. Gish received a B.S. degree from the University of California at Los Angeles with a major in chemistry, and a Ph.D. degree from the University of California at Berkeley with a major in biochemistry. He was elected to the u.c.L.A. chapters of Phi Beta Kappa and Phi Sigma Upsilon, a chemical honorary fraternity. He spent a total of 18 years in biochemical research; with three years at Cornell University Medical College, New York City, four years with the Virus Laboratory, University of California, Berkeley, and eleven years on the research staff of The Upjohn Company, a pharmaceutical firm, Kalamazoo, Michigan. During that time Dr. Gish worked with two Nobel Prize winners.

In 1971, Dr. Gish left his position with The Upjohn Company to join Dr. Henry Morris in his present work with the Institute for Creation Research, where he has served as Associate Director and Vice President. He has published approximately forty technical articles in scientific journals. He is the author of numerous articles and several books on the subject of the scientific evidence for creation. He has participated in nearly 300 debates and has lectured in 49 of the SO states, in most provinces of Canada, and in about 30 foreign countries. He is a member of the American Chemica! Society and is a Fellow of the American Institute of Chemists. He is one of the founders and a board member of the Creation Research Society. He is married and has four children and several grandchildren.
