As you all know, Prof. Arnold is a Nobel Laureate in Chemistry. For me, she is a massive inspiration as a female research scientist. Besides her achievements as a scientist, I really love her position on various aspects of research life and life in general.

One among the many things that really inspired me was how she retracted a study published in the journal Science because the results were not reproducible, and how she handled the retraction.

I made it very clear that I take the blame. It’s my responsibility. I didn’t want students wasting their time trying to reproduce what I had published. It wasn’t fair.

Her brand of leadership is very refreshing.

Thought of sharing her interview with you all...
