Many thanks for another interesting talk. One quote attributed to Rosalind Franklin when she moved to Birkbeck was she went “from the palace of Kings to the slums of Birkbeck” – but she was happy working with J.D. Bernal and Aaron Klug. As an aside the senior British science award is the Copley medal and has gone to such august scientists as Ben Franklin (1753), Charles Darwin (1864) and Einstein (1925), but it has only ever gone to one woman, Dorothy Hodgkin, which feels wrong, given the contributions of Marie Currie, Esther Lederberg and Barbara McClintock among many others…
Brilliant interview, Daniel. Thanks.
