Here is an interesting headline from the World of Dyslexia newsletter:

Carol GreiderCarol Greider Wins Nobel Medicine Prize Despite Dyslexia – Molecular biologist Carol W Greider, 48, is the youngest of the three researchers awarded the Nobel Prize in Medicine on Monday. She shares the honour with other researchers for discoveries important to knowledge about cancer, ageing and inherited genetic diseases.



I wonder if Carol Greider’s triumphs may be not ‘despite dyslexia’ but in part because her learning difference gives her an edge in the field of study she has chosen?
