Inhaltsangabe: Cardy Raper succeeded in being what she dreamed of as a young girl: a successful scientist with her own laboratory at the forefront of her subject. But it was not a conventional path to success. She married her teacher and mentor, a man much older than she, and devoted time to child rearing before she could return to science and work with him in his laboratory at Harvard University. John Raper died unexpectedly, leaving her a widow at 49. From then on it was a hard struggle. She had first to obtain her PhD and then find a job where she could keep her science alive. Eventually Cardy learned to be a molecular biologist, won independent research funding, and set up her own laboratory at the University of Vermont. Cardy believed in herself despite the setbacks, a belief instilled early on by caring parents and five supportive older brothers. This is the personal story of an exceptional woman scientist. The author is extensively published in national and international scientific journals. She has also authored several book chapters. She received a Masters in Science degree from The University of Chicago and a Ph.D. from Harvard University. She was awarded over 20 grants for her research from the National Science Foundation, the National Institutes of Health, and the United States Department of Agriculture among others. She was an invited speaker at numerous international symposia and at colleges, universities, and industries in the U.S., Canada, Europe, Israel, and Japan. At a recent testimonial dinner in her honor, scientists came from all over the world. Dr. Raper is listed in "Who's Who of Women" and "Who's Who in Frontiers of Science and Technology"
