Born in the tiny village of Palaco, just outside of Mexicali, Mexico, Alfredo Quiñones-Hinojosa was the oldest of five children in his family. Quiñones-Hinojosa crossed into the United States illegally in 1987 when he was only 19 and began working on farms near Fresno, California in order to earn enough money to afford English lessons.

Brad Pitt as Dr. Q. and the real Dr. Q.

From there, he attended San Joaquin Delta College and completed his bachelor’s degree in psychology at the University of California, Berkeley with the school’s highest honors. Next, he earned a degree from Harvard Medical School with honors and became a U.S. citizen.

Today, Alfredo Quiñones-Hinojosa is known simply as Dr. Q, the internationally renowned neurosurgeon and neuroscientist who leads a cutting-edge research to cure brain cancer.

In his memoir, Becoming Dr. Q: My Journey from Migrant Farm Worker to Brain Surgeon, Alfredo Quiñones-Hinojosa tells his amazing life story-from his impoverished childhood Mexico, to his harrowing border crossing and his rising from being an illegal immigrant to an American citizen and gifted student at the University of California at Berkeley and at Harvard Medical School.

Packed with adventure and adversity-including a few terrifying brushes with death- before becoming Dr. Q it is a story about the importance of family, of mentors, and of giving people a chance.
His success story is as improbable as it is traditionally “American.”

Now Brad Pitt, partnering with Disney, is developing a movie based on Quiñones-Hinojosa’s life. Pitt will play the lead role of Dr. Q.

Brad Pitt, Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner, who have been working on the film since 2007 and have recruited Matthew Lopez to write the script. Interest in the project came about when studio executives heard Dr. Q’s story on a radio program.

Alfredo Quiñones-Hinojosa, is now the Director of the Brain Tumor Surgery Center at Johns Hopkins.

There’s plenty more to discover about Dr. Q now, thanks to the forthcoming movie and his book, available on Amazon, Becoming Dr. Q: My Journey from Migrant Farm Worker to Brain Surgeon.
