Disabled scientists are still vastly underrepresented in the sciences. With Enable Science, and with the help of a grant from the Royal Society of Chemistry’s Inclusion and Diversity Fund, we’ve produced a series of twelve graphics highlighting the amazing science being done by disabled scientists across the UK. Each poster highlights some of the challenges and accommodations needed to do science alongside being disabled, but also the scientists’ contributions to science.

The Spotlight Series project is targeted at school children to demonstrate that it is possible to undertake a scientific career and be disabled. It is hoped that this will inspire more students to study and work in science, no matter what their background.
