When she was young, Dr. Przytycka read a book on Marie Skłodowska-Curie and dreamed of becoming a scientist ever since. The story of this famous Polish-born scientist showed not only how exciting scientific discoveries are, but also that a woman can be a scientist. Now see what she does for our IRP!
Meet Dr. Michael Chiang! After he planned for a career as an engineer, he found that his interest in machines could be applied to medicine and help treat people with disease. So he switched his focus (if you will!) to vision science before joining NIH as Director of NEI in November 2020.
