Lynn’s personal life is something you would never expect to be. Margulis is very famous for her discovery of the symbiosis in biological evolution and how many other scientists took her work and went off of her observations and facts. Body Paragraph 1: This paragraph will be about your Cell Biologist’s personal life, and life as a scientist. As much work and away from home Margulis was, she still very much had her own family and personal life.
Working in the pharmaceutical corporation today, I have had the privilege to see her work in the highlighting moments. Even though there has been many years of work past her and different development ideas, she impacted the medical works and even as a chemist, created drugs to help fight the terminal illnesses like cancer. Through this assignment, I really connected with Gertrude story being that we both have family history in Lithuania and both started careers in the pharmaceutical industry. I have felt connected thought this entire forum simply because I can relate to her life and what she had to endure to become successful in the drug world.

The spectral classes were as follows: O, B, A, F, G, K, M. Annie Jump Cannon’s career ended after forty years, but her work paved the way for women in the scientific community and continues to inspire fellow female scientists. Cannon was able to work hard enough that people in the scientific community looked past the fact that she was partially deaf and a woman. Annie Cannon is an important woman in the history of science because she was able to overcome sexism and a disability while developing her own revolutionary and important version of stellar classification. Obviously, Annie Cannon’s backstory is important because it can reveal
Women played a major role in WWII which lead on to one of the greatest social movements in history. Betty Freidan was an important pioneer of feminism and played a critical part to women’s right movements or also know as "the mother of the modern feminist movement.” Freidan was born on February 4, 1921, in Peoria, Illinois.

After spending some time in California, Freidan relocated her self to New York in the mid 1940’s where she found
This novel includes his journeys across the world and the individuals who helped form the discovery of DNA. The creation of scientific ideas and advancements are what has shaped our world today, without the discovery of the hemoglobin molecule, or even the discovery of DNA, we as individuals would not know how genes work and why every individual is unique in the way they look. Giving credit to these scientists is a very important part of history, “The previous day Max Perutz had given Francis a new manuscript by Sir Lawrence and himself, dealing with the shape of the hemoglobin molecule. As he rapidly read its contents Francis became furious, for he noticed that part of the argument depended upon a theoretical idea he had pronounced some nine months earlier” (Watson 57). In this one sees how Francis became upset when his own scientific ideas had been copied without being given the proper credit.
She worked as the Head of the Department of Experimental Therapy for 16 year and was connected to the National Cancer Institute for many years. Although Ms.Elion has been honored in many different ways her greatest achievement is receiving the Nobel Prize in Medicine in 1988 for her work with a variety of drugs. Although she loved her work she was also passionate about travel, theater, ballet, and music specifically opera.

The Colossus was created to help British codebreakers decode encrypted German messages, during World War II. The ABC (John Atanasoff Computer), the world 's first electronic digital computer, was built by John Atanasoff and Clifford Berry in 1942 at Iowa State University. The computer was designed to generally to solve linear equations. But, the 18,000 vacuum tube powered computer also solved the U.S. Army 's problem of computing artillery and bombing tables. The computer also replaced more than 200 women working with mechanical desk calculators.
She mastered the ability of calculations to reveal 3-dimensional films of the smallest molecules, and eventually the double helix in DNA. She began research on coal and created a better gas mask, a critical safety mechanism during World War II. Her research was published earning her a Ph.D.
Amid Alexander Fleming 's Nobel discourse he said, "After I finished my research, biochemist Dorothy Crawfort Hodkin used x-rays to determine the atomic structure and molecular shape of penicillin. " (Fleming,2)Dr. C.G. Paine, dermatologist Albert Nutt were two famous doctors who used Hodkin’s research to develop several startling cures with the new substance as early as 1930 (Krebs,23) All of the fresh out of the box new research and the newfound properties of penicillin brought these new anti biotics which cured maladies that were very common, which balanced out various sorts of microbes.The life expectancy of the urban population increased by 3 years. (Lofgren,2)Hospitals in the cities were able to treat patients quicker and reduce medical costs. (Lofgren,3) This shows that people were healthier, hospitals had more money to spend on other things and that people could be treated of their illnesses easily.
