Rosalind Franklin - Celebrating the first 100 years
Rosalind Franklin's contribution to science, in a career cut tragically short by ovarian cancer at just 37 years, is still blossoming. She was brilliant, brave, creative, dedicated, tireless. The techniques she pioneered and the discoveries she made with them; defining the structures of DNA, RNA and viruses, changed medicine and science forever. They will catalyse even more progress in the next 100 years. She battled sexism and ill-health but remained steadfast. Thank you Rosalind Franklin.
