Stewart Adams (Boots UK)
Stewart Adams was a British chemist who led the team that developed ibuprofen. The anti-inflammatory painkiller is today one of the most commonly used drugs of its kind. Adams got his start as a pharmacist's apprentice at the large U.K. pharmacy chain Boots. He went on to work in their research department, initially working on the team that was producing penicillin. His creation of ibuprofen came out of a search for a better drug to treat rheumatoid arthritis.
