Much like science, history is cumulative. History is passed down in stories in order to be remembered, honored, and learned from. In the tradition of the historical female pioneers of science such as Marie Curie, Barbara McClintock, Dorothy Hodgkin, Rosalind Franklin, Jane Goodall and many more, we celebrate our Women in Science with profiles describing their paths to scientific studies and the heart of their passion for the disciplines they practice. Each has a different story, and some provide advice for up and coming women contemplating a career in science.
Here are their stories.

During one of those visits, Linda’s family noticed the 3-year-old was missing.
