call would mark the beginning of a decadelong adventure through scienti c laboratories, hospitals, and mental institutions, with a cast of characters that would include Nobel laureates, grocery store clerks, convicted felons, and a professional con artist. While trying to make sense of the history of cell culture and the complicated ethical debate surrounding the use of human tissues in research, I’d be accused of conspiracy and slammed into a wall both physically and metaphorically, and I’d eventually
lifetime, studies have shown that creativity can be trained in any individual (Scott et al., 2004). What can you do to improve your creative skills? Here is a set of suggestions drawn from research on creativity: Find the problem.

Soon other American doctors and scientists joined in a public debate on the pros and cons of sex-change surgery. When the Jorgensen story broke, the press turned to the doctors, who in the postwar era had increasing cultural clout and professional authority. From the start, the doctors and scientists fought among themselves about the
without walls, for supervisors who value “people skills” above all. To advance our careers, we’re expected to promote ourselves unabashedly. The scientists whose research gets funded often have confident, perhaps overconfident, personalities. The artists whose work adorns the walls of contemporary museums strike impressive poses at gallery openings. The authors whose books get published—once accepted as a reclusive breed—are now vetted by publicists to make sure they’re talk-show ready. (You wouldn’t
