Continuing the series of bios on amazing Jewish women, this week I bring you Rosalind Franklin. Franklin had an incredible mind. Born in 1920, she grew up in London. She graduated from Cambridge in 1941 and earned her Ph.D. in 1945. She became an accomplished X-ray crystallographer and worked on X-ray diffraction studies, which would eventually facilitate the double helix theory of the DNA. Her work led to the discovery of the DNA double helix for which James Watson, Francis Crick and Maurice Wilkins shared the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1962. Watson suggested that Franklin would have ideally been awarded a Nobel Prize in Chemistry, along with Wilkins, but the Nobel Committee does not make posthumous nominations, and unfortunately, Franklin died in 1958 of ovarian cancer. After finishing her work on DNA, Franklin led pioneering work on the molecular structures of viruses. Her team member Aaron Klug continued her research, winning the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1982. Wow! Two Nobel prizes came out of Franklin's work!
Hope to see you at Sukkot!
