Today DNA technology is very much a part of our lives, but back in the 1950's scientists didn't understand its structure or how it functioned. Rosalind Franklin was a dedicated, witty scientist whose work paved the way for the biotechnology revolution that continues today.  Once forgotten, her work stands today as one of the pillars on which modern molecular genetics is based.  Franklin's drive to do something useful sprang from her Jewish roots, even if she did not necessarily believe in G-d.

Please note: We will be recording all of our sessions.
