Our submission for this award is part of our positive change commitment. We highlight the significant contribution made by a group of female professionals, within a wider project and design team, to the realisation of an exemplary scientific facility named for Dr Rosalind Franklin, an outstanding research chemist who died of ovarian cancer aged only 37. Her fundamental scientific contribution to the discovery of DNA’s molecular structure went unrecognised, unlike her fellow male scientists James Watson, Francis Crick and Maurice Wilkins who were awarded the 1962 Nobel Prize.
