For the report, researchers at the University of Cambridge and University of Essex conducted six separate studies to see how scientists' looks affected public perception of their research.Faces of scientists were randomly selected for the studies, sampling from the physics and genetics departments at United States universities, and also from physics and biological sciences departments at British universities.One group of participants was asked to rate the scientists' faces on their level of attractiveness.People also appeared slightly more interested in older scientists, and less drawn to females.Researchers found no differences along racial lines, whether scientists were black or white.
