Program Description


Join a team of professors from Rosalind Franklin University at the History Center of Lake Forest-Lake Bluff for a discussion on the scientific and social advancements prior to, during, and following the time of Rosalind Franklin. By examining the novelization and story of Marie Benedict's 'Her Hidden Genius' from a scientific and historical perspective, we gain a better understanding into the kind of person Rosalind Franklin was, how her achievements have resonated through history, as well as how she has been remembered as a symbol of dedication and courage for women.
