Presented by Eric Yarnell, ND, RH (AHG) in room 186: "Percy Julian, PhD (1899-1975), was one of the first African-Americans granted a PhD (in chemistry in his case). He worked in the area of plant chemistry and pharmacognosy. He was instrumental in the commercialization of creating human hormones from plant precursor compounds from soy and wild yam. Despite suffering severe discrimination, he always kept fighting and moving ahead in his life and career. He was the second African-American elected to the National Academy of Sciences. Come learn more about this amazing scientist."
