Alice Dreger is a former professor of Clinical Medical Humanities and Bioethics at the Feinberg School of Medicine, Northwestern University. She is the author of Hermaphrodites and the Medical Invention of Sex, One of Us: Conjoined Twins and the Future of Normal, Intersex in the Age of Ethics, and recently the much acclaimed Galileo’s Middle Finger: Heretics, Activists, and the Search for Justice in Science. She has also published numerous peer reviewed articles in academic journals.
 
Dr. Dreger is a well-known historian and activist with the intersex and transgender movements. She led, for example, the movement to stop the shockingly barbaric practice of sex-assignment (“normalizing”) surgery in infants, which up until a few years ago was standard medical treatment. Dr. Dreger has also led a life in the defense of scientific freedom. InGalileo’s Middle Finger, she reminds us that science often forces us to give up some of our most cherished moral and social beliefs, and respect for authority is useless for doing science. Heretics in science even today are often shunned and ostracized, and the freedom of research is under assault by politicians, funding agencies, politically correct universities, and activists groups.

Maybe you are procrastinating right now...
When your motivation is low, it’s hard to get started on your work. And nothing can sap your motivation quite like feeling you’re out of control of your work. To counter that feeling, give yourself ways to feel in control.

Everything I Know About Leadership I Learned from Star Trek
It’s Star Trek’s 50th anniversary, and while I could wax rhapsodic about the impact the show had on me, one thing that persists, even now, every day, is how I learned how to be a good leader by watching Starfleet captains. Sometimes they were exceptional. Other times they really weren’t. I always learned something.
