Profile of Rosalind Franklin
The credit (or lack of it) given to Rosalind Franklin for her work has been discussed in great detail since her death; many of Franklin’s supporters feel that Watson and Crick were given credit that Franklin deserved. Because Franklin died in 1958, she was ineligible to be included in the Nobel Prize for Medicine which Watson, Crick and Maurice Wilkins shared in 1962… Since 2003, the Royal Society of the UK has given a Rosalind Franklin Award “for an outstanding contribution to any area of natural science, engineering or technology”… The Illinois school known as Finch University of Health Sciences/The Chicago Medical School changed its name in 2004 to Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science.
