German chemist and physicist. Firstly, the concept of nuclear fission was put forward, and the 75th element rhenium was discovered together with her husband Walter Nodak.

Irene Yorio-Curie

Kathleen Lonsdale

crystallographer, a pioneer in the study of crystal structure by x-ray, confirmed the plane structure of benzene ring by means of X-ray diffraction.

Dorothy Marie Hodgkin

biochemist and pharmacologist have made many contributions to drug research and development, developing N drugs, such as azathioprine for organ transplantation and autoimmune diseases. Acyclovir used to fight herpesvirus and so on.

Rosalyn Franklin

physical chemist and crystallographer, the key to determining the structure of DNA!
