Due to discriminatory procedures at King¡¯s College, Franklin eventually left to become the lead researcher at London¡¯s Birbeck College--upon agreeing not to work on DNA. She furthered her studies in coal and made significant advances in virology. Franklin died in 1958 of ovarian cancer. She lived 37 monumentally significant years. 	After researching Rosalind Franklin¡¯s scientific career, I truly believe that she was a pioneer rather than a follower.
In July 1945, Arline, the love of Richards life, finally succumbed to the dreaded tuberculosis she had been fighting all of this time. To escape the pain, he immersed himself in his work and the 1st atomic bomb ever was ready for detonation very quickly. With his work at Los Alamos done, Richard took a teaching position at Cornell University where he became depressed and believed that his life's work was behind him. But as he was stewing in his own depression, more and more of the top universities were sending more and more lucrative professorships his way.
Later he was trained by Carnegie Institute and University of Tennessee to become a mechanical engineer. In 1944, Kurt’s mother committed suicide on May 14. He returns home briefly, then was captured in the Battle of the Bulge. While working in a factory in Dresden, Germany, Vonnegut picked up his materials for Slaughterhouse Five. After this he married Jane Mary Cox on September 1, 1945.
However, reality sheds another light and the testing is rushed, failure has resulted. The failure in the past tests of genetic therapy is the result of many different factors. Prior to solving the major puzzles of gene therapy, scientists must first figure out the smaller fundamental problems, many of which have not been worked out so that the technology can be advanced. According to an article titled “Gene Therapy” by Eric B. Kmiec most of the techniques of current gene therapy consist of attempting to replace a defective gene, with one that is fully functional. One of the major problems has been getting the gene into the nucleus of the cell and fitting it in its proper place.
Eleanor was born on October 11th 1884 in New York City to Anna and Elliott Roosevelt. Six years later, Elliott was confined to a mental asylum and Anna died of diphtheria. Eleanor’s grandmother followed her mother’s wishes, and enrolled Eleanor at Allenswood School in England when she was 15 and was there until 1902 (http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/amex/eleanor/). During this time, President McKinley was assassinated and her Uncle, Theodore “Teddy” Roosevelt became president. When Eleanor finished school, she went back to New York and enmeshed herself into upper class society at the Waldorf- Astoria Hotel in New York City.
She soon died of cervical cancer in 1951. The source delves into the injustice that was done with Mrs.Lacks it says Not all of Henrietta Lacks died that day. She unknowingly left behind a piece of her that still lives today—it’s called the HeLa cell. Her cells were taken and used for medical research without her consent. And for more than 20 years after her death Henrietta’s family would learn how science retrieved her cells and of her enormous contribution to medicine and to human life.

Hazel taught him the "legacy" he had with the ones he loved was more important than fame and glory among strangers (wanting to be remembered). Sometimes an individual has to drop the idea of being “glorious” and accept what God / Fate / the Stars have given you.

Based on all her work, Marie Curie made many ground breaking discoveries in her lifetime. She is the most famous female scientist to have ever lived and received many posthumous honors.

Shortly after their marriage Archie was sent off to fight in World War I.
