He wasn't exactly a biologist, but Wilhelm Reich had a few interesting ideas, imho.

My favourite are Rosalind Franklin [BioPhysicist (Cristalographist)], Patrick Bateson [Biologist (Geneticist)], Louis Pasteur [Biologist (Biochemist)], Santiago Ramón y Cajal [Medical scientists (Physiologist)] and Severo Ochoa [Medical scientist (Biochemist)].

Generally speaking, the more people talk about "being saved," the further away they actually are from true salvation.

Mine is Barbara McClintock followed quickly by Kary Mullis.

Barbara McClintock (1902-1992) was a Nobel Prize who discovered the mobility of genetic elements (transposable genes) on and between chromosomes. As she was a woman, her discovery wasn't accepted by other colleagues and it passed a long time from the discovery to the moment in which it was recognised.

Kabuto, now do you know who is she? Her discovery has been very important in Cytogenetics (I love this field of Biology ;)).
