Famous Scientist Biography
So far in MED2BMS, you have focussed on researching information on diseases as well as looking at biomedical journal articles and biomedical databases. Another important skill in any science discipline is to know the key scientists and appreciate their contribution to the field of research.
Your task is to think through all the famous luminaries in the biomedical field and then produce a 1-page biography of who you think has made the most revolutionary impact on the biomedical field since 1900. The person of interest may be:
– a researcher
– a doctor
– an allied health professional
– a pure scientist
– any combination of the above, or something else!
Your task is to describe their achievements (this could include any patents and publications, which you can find using the online medical databases) and then define the significance of their work. Argue why, in your opinion, they have made a greater contribution to biomedical science that anyone else since the twentieth century. You should write in paragraph form, although a list of publications/awards/achievements can also be included. They do not need to be Australian; they could be born before 1900 but their work must have been done after this; they could be male or female; they could be living or dead. Your intention is to be a) clear, b) accurate and c) compelling while also selecting the most important information.

• Demonstrate research/inquiry skills by identifying, evaluating and collating appropriate information from scientific sources (MED2BMS ILO 2)
• Developing an appreciation for the scope and workings of the biomedical profession (MED2BMS ILO 3)
There is no need for referencing, although a list of key publications by the scientist (if they exist) is essential. A guide to marking will also be posted on the LMS.
The due date is Friday 1st November (the last day of semester) at 5pm in the MED2BMS dropbox in Room 200, LIMS1. An electronic copy must also be submitted through turnitin. Often, many assignments across multiple subjects are due at the end of semester, so you do not need to wait until the last day to complete this!
