Scientists Who Changed Medicine Forever
Inspiring Stories of Humanity's Greatest Minds
If we could miraculously transport even the smartest people from around 1800 to today's world, they would be simply astonished at how we now understand things that had puzzled humans for centuries.
Just over a hundred years ago, people had no idea how we inherit and pass on traits or how a single cell could grow into an organism. They didn't know that atoms themselves had structure - the word itself means indivisible. And they had no idea how things began, whether it was life on earth or the universe itself. Yet, with the minimum knowledge and resources, they were able to cure some of the most deadly diseases on the planet.
