Dorothy Crowfoot Hodgkin was a Nobel Prize winning British biochemist, well-known for her work on the structure of penicillin, insulin and vitamin B12. She became interested in chemistry while she was in school and fought to gain entry into the chemistry class, which until then was reserved for boys. Later, she earned her bachelor’s degree in chemistry from the Somerville College, Oxford and joined the Cambridge University for her doctoral work. However, on receiving fellowship, she went back to Oxford within two years and finished her work. One year before she received her PhD, she was appointed as an Official Fellow and a Tutor in Natural Science at the Somerville College and remained there until her retirement. However, life was never easy for her. Her laboratory was located in one corner of the Natural History Museum and she had to collect money to install an X-ray machine there. Initially, she was not taken seriously by students and faculties; but her grit and talent won in the end and she soon gained their respect. She was also a very good human being and was greatly concerned about social inequities.
