Dorothy Crowfoot Hodgkin was born in Cairo but spent most of her life in England. An undergraduate chemist at Oxford, and a postgraduate crystallography student at Cambridge, she concerned herself with the structure of proteins using X-ray crystallography. Having determined the structure of the steroid cholesteryl iodide and penicillin, as well as the structure of vitamin B12, she received the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1964. However, in 1969 she made her most impressive discovery: the structure of insulin.
