In celebration of international #WomenInScience day, l’d like to introduce you to 3 nutritionists/ medical researchers that I worked on during my PhD. They were pretty tough and persevering... THREAD 1/8 #histmed #histSTEM

1) #GoogleDoodle today is on #Persian Polymath, philosopher, & poet #OmarKhayyam to celebrate his 971st birthday.

This is second time that #Google dedicated a Doodle to him. In 2012 too, #Khayyam’s 964th birthday was also celebrated by the search engine with a special #doodle

A contemporary of #Ghazali, #OmarKhayyam was one of the most versatile scholars of the time, simultaneously a polymath, philosopher and a poet.
3) #OmarKhayyam can be regarded as a successor of al-Farabi and al-Biruni, in the line of argument although he is more famous for his #Rubaiyat (Quatrain).
