The third meeting -- THURSDAY, October 26, 2000

Discussing the book on the "Nobel Laureate Rosalyn Yalow, her Life and Work" with the author Eugene Straus, M.D.

Some Discussion Topics
  • Ros Yalow describes herself as "aggressive." Are you aggressive? Is an aggressive nature essential for a career in science?
  • Yalow insisted on "beating men at their own game." Is science "their" game? Is there male science and female science?
  • Do you have to be better than a man to succeed?
  • In your experience, is the atmosphere in your lab like a ball team or a combat unit? Are dominance, ambition, and competitiveness prized? Is this necessary?

  • Time: 6:30 - 8:00PM
  • Place: Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences, NYU, 251 Mercer Street, 13th floor lounge

All students (undergraduate and graduate), postdoctoral fellows, faculty, staff, and anyone else who is interested, male or female, are welcome!

We appreciate the support for this initiative from the Faculty of Arts and Science and the Graduate School of Arts and Science
