Rosalind Franklin

British scientist, Rosalind Franklin (1920 - 1958) made a significant contribution to molecular biology, providing experimental evidence of the structure of DNA. In detail, he created a particular device for taking high-definition photographs of single DNA strands and obtaining a series of images by X-ray diffraction. In 1962 James Watson, Francis Crick and Maurice Wilkins - who had worked with the scientist - obtained the Nobel Prize in Medicine for the discovery of the structure of DNA, but they did not acknowledge the contribution of Rosalind Franklin (now dead) even during their acceptance speech. Recognition of the scientist's work was sought by researcher Anne Sayre, her friend, and by the feminist movement.
