Congratulations to recent ECo postdoc Jess McLaughlin, one of an interdisciplinary group of transgender and/or family members of transgender scientists who authored a commentary in the journal Cell where they discuss the historical origins of trans marginalization, explain how this affects trans people’s careers in science and medicine, and lay out actions that cisgender individuals and institutions can take to support trans people in STEMM.
