Notable scientists


  • Almost all residents in the Institute are scientists, the others being synths, coursers and children.
  • When the quest Synth Retention is completed, many of the Institute scientists will have different dialogue.
  • During the quest Dangerous Minds, an Institute scientist can be seen meeting with Kellogg, one of the only instances where they appear outside of the Institute.
  • If the Institute is destroyed, the evacuation order was sounded, and there remains an uncleared hostile workshop on the map, the player may receive the quest Resettle Refugees, in which Institute Scientists form a group of refugees which wear dirty versions of the Institute lab coat. They will become settlers within the workshop once it has been cleared and claimed, and have unique dialogue in which they lament the Institute's destruction and the conditions on the surface.


Institute scientists appear only in Fallout 4.
