P=MC ••• 🐞 Pedia 🐞 = Materials, Critters
🤩 Fun Fact: Material is a substance or mixture of substances that constitutes an object. Materials can be pure or impure, living or non-living matter. Materials can be classified based on their physical and chemical properties, or on their geological origin or biological function.
…and 🐞 Pedia 🐞 is just that!! Materials!
🤩 Fun Fact: American biochemist and pharmacologist Gertrude B. Elion helped develop drugs to treat leukemia and prevent kidney transplant rejection. She won a Nobel Prize for medicine in 1988. With the drugs that she created, Gertrude Elion fulfilled her life's mission: to alleviate human suffering. Beyond the individual drugs she discovered, she pioneered a new, more scientific approach to drug development that forever altered – and accelerated – medical research.
…Gerti Pi is Pedia's resident materialogist and is named after Gertrude Elion.
“Maybe I was young and ‘cute’ (after all, I was only 20 then), but I’ve learned over the years that when you put white lab coats on chemists, they all look alike.” - Gertrude Elion
