Chemist. Magnetic resonance imaging.

"Every great idea in history has the red stamp of rejection on its face. If you scratch any innovation's surface, you'll find the scars: they've been roughed up and thrashed around by the masses and the leading minds before they made it into your life."

Maverick

"After graduating from high school, I went on to Case Institute of Technology, an engineering school now part of Case Western Reserve University, in Cleveland, Ohio, about 200 miles north-east of Sidney. My father had recommended it, because, as he observed, he didn't know what scientists did for a living, but engineers could always get a job. But, given a choice of majors, I chose chemistry."
