|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.

English physiologist and biophysicist, who received (with Andrew Fielding Huxley and Sir John Eccles) the 1963 Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine for the discovery of the chemical processes responsible for the passage of impulses along individual nerve fibres.
