About the scientist:

Esther Lederberg (1922-2006) was an American microbiologist and geneticist who made significant contributions to the study of genetics and microbiology. She is best known for her pioneering work in developing replica plating, a technique that revolutionized the way scientists study bacteria and their genetic traits. Lederberg's innovative approach allowed researchers to quickly and easily grow bacteria on different types of media, allowing them to study how bacteria adapt and evolve under different conditions. Her work also laid the foundation for modern genetic engineering techniques. Beyond her scientific achievements, Lederberg was a trailblazer for women in science and an advocate for equal opportunities for women in the field. This art print is a perfect tribute to her groundbreaking work and a great addition to any scientist's collection.
