Rosalind Franklin

British scientist Rosalind Franklin was one of the foremost pioneers in molecular biology. She photographed x-rays of DNA strands, which was an important contribution to the solution of the DNA structure. Rosalind's most famous image is known as "Photo 51," a picture that was shown to Cambridge University's Watson and Crick without her knowledge. You may know this duo as the team that won a Nobel Prize for revealing the structure of DNA. Rosalind was very close to coming to the same conclusion herself, and died just four years before Watson and Crick earned their Nobel Prize.
