Physical Chemist (1920-1958)
The STudy of DNA!
"Science and everyday life cannot and should not be separated."
WHAT HAS SHE DONE?
She's the one who found the basis interperatation of crystallographic DNA structure (appearance of a double helix form). Also, her recognition/curiousity of fundamental importance of DNA structure for molecular biology led to her discovery.
- At the age of 15 she was already choosing her science career over family,love, and marriage. (Such determination!)
There was some conflicts against misleading impressions of DNA structures, She also had a problematic attitude torwards women and minority researchers prevailing at King's college.
Effects Us Today!
Back then a lot was known about DNA, except one thing. Without Rosalind Franklin's discovery about the appearance of a DNA molecule, or how it preformed amazing heredity functions then we still wouldn't have known today! A new discovery always makes an impact on on the future, just like this case scenario as well.
