Rosalind Franklin picked by Kate Bingham, former head of the UK government's vaccine taskforce

Great Lives

Rosalind Franklin was born in 1920 and studied Natural Sciences. After working in Paris at the Laboratoire Central - where she became an x-ray crystallographer - she moved to King's College London. Here she helped to take the famous Photograph 51 which led to the discovery of the double helix shape of DNA. Her contribution was famously and disgracefully downplayed by the men who won the Nobel Prize. Later at Birkbeck College she undertook pioneering work of the structure of viruses before dying of ovarian cancer, aged just 37.Nominating Rosalind Franklin is Kate Bingham. She chaired the UK government's Vaccine Taskforce, and she also attended the same school as Rosalind Franklin - St Paul's Girls' School in London. Further contributions from Dr Patricia Fara of Clare College, Cambridge, and Howard Bailes, archivist of St Paul's School.Archive contributors include Francis Crick, Maurice Wilkins and Colin Franklin.The producer in Bristol is Miles Warde

Gals Guide

Bonnie starts off Science Gals month talking about the "Dark Lady of DNA" Dr. Rosalind Franklin. You might know her better as the one who wrote all the notes about DNA and then some dude named Watson took them and published them first. Deliciously feisty episode!

Cowboy Chemistry

Do you know Rosalind Franklin? She is sometimes called the dark lady of DNA; she was a chemist and X-ray crystallographer that collected the crucial data that allowed Watson and Crick to create their model of the double helix. Unfortunately she did not get the credit she deserved for her contributions during her lifetime.  Music by: Brian Mylls Photo by: Vittorio Luzzati Guest: Gabby Settlemire

Rosalind Franklin


Hi friends! You probably missed us last week :) Ellen and I decided we will take one week out each month to take a well deserved break. It may not seem as much, but each episode takes a bunch of work for research, recording and cutting :) But we're so glad to be back. This week with Rosalind Franklin, the mother of DNA. Rosalind and her PhD student took the first picture of DNA, which was then swooped up by 3 men, who went and received a Nobel Prize for their discovery of the structure of DNA. We believe Rosalind would have deserved to share that prize as well. Unfortunately her life was cut short by cancer, similar to many women we've been covering here. We hope you enjoy listening!Referenceshttps://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-020-02144-4https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rosalind_Franklinhttps://www.theguardian.com/science/2015/jun/23/sexism-in-science-did-watson-and-crick-really-steal-rosalind-franklins-datahttps://www.nature.com/scitable/topicpage/rosalind-franklin-a-crucial-contribution-6538012/https://theconversation.com/sexism-pushed-rosalind-franklin-toward-the-scientific-sidelines-during-her-short-life-but-her-work-still-shines-on-her-100th-birthday-139249https://www.pbs.org/wgbh/aso/databank/entries/bofran.htmlhttps://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/article/rosalind-franklin-legacy/#sayrhttps://www.forbes.com/sites/kionasmith/2018/04/16/rosalind-franklin-died-60-years-ago-today-without-the-nobel-prize-she-deserved/?sh=5da449dc79e7https://www.nature.com/articles/496270a
