Rosalind Elsie Franklin

The British scientist Rosalind Elsie Franklin (1920 – 1958), whose pioneering research helped lay the groundwork for the modern study and understanding of genetics, was known for her sociability and sense of fun, even as her independent thinking and unusual approaches meant that some of her most critical scientific work was done in isolation.
