Rosalind Franklin by tamiart Rosalind Franklin by tamiart
Rosalind Franklin was a British Jewish chemist who made a crucial contribution to the discovery of the double helix structure in DNA. Sadly, this fact is little known. Brilliant and headstrong, she did not get along with her proud male colleagues James Watson, Francis Crick, and Maurice Wilkins, who used her research in their DNA model without giving her credit until after they won the Nobel Prize, which was four years after her death in 1958. She died at age 37 of ovarian cancer, possibly caused by her exposure to radiation during her work.

Thank you for giving her this recognition. She not only received any credit for the discovery of the DNA double helix but she received a lot of insults by Wilkins and Watson even after the Nobel. She is actually my hero...

I wish I could draw creative backgrounds like that! I like how you twisted the branches into dna strands!
