Henry T. Lynch (born January 4, 1928) is an American physician noted for his discovery of familial susceptibility to certain kinds of cancer and his research into genetic links to cancer. He is sometimes described as "the father of hereditary cancer detection and prevention" or the "father of cancer genetics", although Lynch himself said that title should go to the early 20th century pathologist Aldred Scott Warthin. Lynch is the chairman of preventive medicine at Creighton University School of Medicine in Omaha, Nebraska and holds the Charles F. and Mary C. Heider Endowed Chair in Cancer Research.
