Mayim Bialik is Emmy Award winning actress best known for her role on “Blossom” in the 1990s and as Amy Farrah Fowler on “The Big Bang Theory.” Mayim also has very successful, career in neurobiology!Mayim received her PhD from UCLA 2007 upon completing her thesis : “Hypothalamic Regulation in Relation to Maladaptive, Obsessive-Compulsive, Affiliative, and Satiety Behaviors in Prader-Willi Syndrome.” She has also written books on parenting/hormones and designed a neuroscience curriculum for middle-schoolers! While Mayim had originally anticipated spending her career as a research professor, she decided to focus on acting, a career she is also passionate about that also allows her to spend more time with her children! So what is this superstar doing on the scientist to know list? Mayim defeats the stereotype of a nerdy scigrrrl, showing science’s appeal to any kind of grrrl, from the bubbly Blossom and actress Mayim, to geeky Amy. Just because you are into science doesn’t mean you can’t have or shouldn’t pursue other interests too!
