    Rosalind Elsie Franklin, Ph.D: 1920-1958 Her's is a story of intrigue, envy, prejudice and social issues worthy of any great book or movie. Who should really receive the credit for the discovery of the structure of DNA - one of the greatest scientific discoveries of the 20th century? Three men received the Nobel Prize for the discovery, Franklin and her role were all but forgotten.

    Rosalind Franklin, PhD - the "Dark Lady" of DNA, British x-ray crystallographer whose x-ray photograph of DNA led to the discovery of the double helix. Although she was robbed of the Nobel, she wins the Nobel Prize of my heart!

Scientist Rosalind Franklin made the first clear X-ray images of DNA’s structure. Her work was described as the most beautiful X-ray photographs ever taken. Franklin’s ‘Photo 51’ informed Crick and Watson of DNA’s double helix structure for which they were awarded a Nobel Prize. Franklin died of ovarian cancer in 1958, aged 37, her contribution to DNA’s discovery story unacknowledged.
