Sports and Academia: Who Survives?
When it comes to the academy, as in the university and all of those things that go with it, I have very high standards. My harshest criticisms are reserved for myself. Research scientists live and die by what their peers think of their work. When I say that I managed a funded research career of more than forty-five years in the academy, that means that in my field, my peers found my work - and the work of the students that worked in my labs - at the highest level in the field.
