(interview) Eric Campos (researcher) note reference to Rosalind Franklin

 Rosalind Franklin (Wiki)


Profile of Eric Campos

3. Who is your all-time favourite scientist and why?
So many scientists have contributed to our society that it’s hard to pick.  However, I will go with Rosalind Franklin because of her interesting and unfortunate history. She died at the age of 37 from cancer, probably due to the fact they didn’t use the protective gear that we do today when performing experiments. Her lab performed crucial experiments concerning how the 2 strands of DNA interact with one another. She accomplished more than most of us ever will and remains underappreciated for it. She was definitely on track to win a Nobel Prize before her death.
