Scientist Rosalind Franklin



Scientist Rosalind Franklin

The home of pioneering female scientist Rosalind Franklin.

Location: Donovan Court, 107 Drayton Gardens, Chelsea, SW10 9QS

Description: Pioneering female scientist, Rosalind Franklin (1920-1958), lived here on the fourth floor from 1951 until her death in 1958.

She received recognition for her work on viruses and materials during her lifetime, but it is only posthumously that she was instrumental in the work that Francis Crick and James Watson achieved on the DNA nobel prize research (that she wasnt credit with at the time).

In 1950 she began to study systematic X-rays of DNA fibres, producing crucial information used by Crick and Watson in building their DNA model.
