Researcher Heroes

Have you ever wondered how scientists become scientists? Our childhood heroes can shape our futures and even drive us to be just like them. Students from CDT-PIADS share who their science heroes were as kids and how these brilliant people have influenced their own research. CDT-PIADS is a cohort PhD programme that spans universities, research institutions and industry in multiple locations across Ireland, the UK and Europe.


We want to know who your science hero is. Share a video, picture or short description of your science hero on social media with the hashtag #NotAllScientistsWearGlasses.

Can you remember all the Researcher Heroes? Take the quiz below to test your knowledge.
