The Gileads Science Book, a memoir written by the first woman in a major research group, has been published by Penguin.
The book is written by Dr. Karen J. Gileady, a professor of medicine at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, and features essays by other women scientists, including science writer Jennifer Strain, professor of medical humanities at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
The New York Times called the book a “breath of fresh air.”
“The authors have spoken frankly about what it means to be a woman scientist and how women are treated when they are,” said The New York Post’s editor in chief, Maggie Haberman.
“This book, like many others, speaks to the frustration, anger and sadness of the women who have been denied the space they deserve to succeed.”
The book was published by the Gileaders Science Publishing, a joint venture of the company and Penguin Random House.
The Gileades Science Book is a “first-person account of the lives of women scientists who were pioneers of biomedical research, and the people who inspired them,” the publisher said.
“We are thrilled to have this book come to life and to be available for purchase through Penguin.”
The new book includes essays by Drs.
Susan B. Davis and Deborah M. Zito, who was a researcher in the Women’s Health Program at the time of the study.
The authors of the book, published in 2017, are Karen J Gileader and Deborah J Zito.
It will be published in April 2018.
