PSD Trailblazers

“The trailblazers in human, academic, scientific and religious freedom have always been nonconformists.” – MLK Jr.

The Physical Sciences Division (PSD) at the University of Chicago is home to visionary scholars, pioneers and history-makers who blazed trails for the scientists that followed. 

The PSD Trailblazers Wall is an interactive mural that celebrates the life and work of some of our many scientists who have pushed the boundaries of science and history. The exhibit honors the stories of those who came to the Division or to a groundbreaking discovery first.
