Peter A. Lawrence of the Department of Zoology, University of Cambridge, and the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology, Cambridge has written a beautifully argued article, The Mismeasurement of Science.

...
Lawrence argues eloquently a point that I too have been advocating for years. It is well known that, in spite of an increased proportion of women entering biomedical research as students, there has been little, if any, increase in the representation of women at the top. This causes much hand-wringing among university bureaucrats, who fail to notice that one reason for it is the very policies that they themselves advocate. Women, I suspect, are less willing to embrace the semi-dishonest means that are needed to advance in science. As Lawrence puts it

It is interesting that Peter Lawrence is associated with the Laboratory for Molecular Biology, one of the most successful labs of all time.

If that method were adopted, the Institution would pressurise its members to behave in precisely the same bad ways as Lawrence has described, in order to increase the aggregate score (see also http://www.dcscience.net/goodscience/?p=4 )

Peter Lawrence Cells in epithelial sheets are polarised in the plane of the sheet, as shown by the patterned orientation of mammalian hairs and insect bristles. This fundamental phenomenon, known as planar cell polarity (PCP), is essential during development, and failures in PCP have been implicated in common human birth defects, such as cleft palate, spina bifida, hearing defects and polycystic kidney disease. Dr Lawrence studies PCP in the fruit fly Drosophila and has recently discovered that single epithelial cells can be multipolar - polarised in different directions - suggesting that the mechanisms of PCP are subcellular. During this award, Dr Lawrence aims to understand the molecular mechanisms by which cells read and interpret their environment to determine their orientation and communicate this information to neighbouring cells, by using a combination of Drosophila genetics, cell biology and in vivo imaging.

Peter Lawrence Cells in epithelial sheets are polarised in the plane of the sheet, as shown by the patterned orientation of mammalian hairs and insect bristles. This fundamental phenomenon, known as planar cell polarity (PCP), is seen across animal and plant development. Dr Lawrence studies PCP in the fruit fly Drosophila, the model system best suited to genetic and molecular analysis. He aims to understand the molecular mechanisms whereby cells read their orientation within an animal or organ and communicate that information to neighbouring cells.
