Born in 1920 in London, England, Rosalind Franklin earned a Ph.D. in physical #chemistry
from Cambridge University. She learned #crystallography
and X-ray diffraction, techniques that she applied to #DNA
fibers. One of her photographs provided key insights into DNA structure. Other scientists used it as evidence to support their DNA model and took credit for the #discovery.
Franklin died of ovarian cancer in 1958, at age 37.
