A brilliant molecular scientist, whose work led to 3 others getting the Nobel Prize, is now a bus driver:

Douglas Prasher - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

“Prasher reported that he was unable to find a job in science, his life savings had run out and that he was working as a courtesy shuttle bus driver…”

“Chalfie and Tsien invited Prasher and his wife, Virginia Eckenrode, to attend the Nobel Prize ceremony, as their guests and at their expense. All three of the 2008 Chemistry laureates thanked Prasher in their speeches.”
