Caption: Dorothy Mary Hodgkin (1910-1994), British chemist, with models and crystallography images of the molecules she studied. Hodgkin (nee Crowfoot) pioneered the use of X-ray diffraction for determining the structure of biomolecules. She used this method to discover the structure of penicillin (penicillin G at far left) in 1945, and that of vitamin B12 (at centre left) in 1956, for which she was awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1964. In 1972 she described the structure of insulin (background), a project started in the 1930s. In 1965, she was made a member of the Order of Merit. Photographed at Oxford University in 1989.
