|Hodgkin (hŏj'kĭn) Pronunciation Key
British chemist who used x-ray techniques to determine the structure of several complex molecules, including penicillin (1942-45) and vitamin B12 (1948-56). For this work she received the 1964 Nobel Prize for chemistry. She later used more advanced computing methods to analyze the structure of insulin.
