She would eventually die from radiation poisoning...
D. Dec 29th 2004 -- American chemist who shared The 1970 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine with Bernard Katz and Ulf von Euler for work on catecholamine neurotransmitters.
Discovered solar neutrinos
D. Sept 16th 2005 -- Inventor of the Laser
A French chemist and microbiologist best known for his remarkable breakthroughs in the causes and prevention of disease. His experiments supported the germ theory of disease, also reducing mortality from puerperal fever (childbed), and he created the first vaccine for rabies. He was best known to the general public for inventing a method to stop milk and wine from causing sickness - this process came to be called Pasteurization.
In 1942 Alfred Kinsey became the founder director of the Institute of Sex Research at Indiana and in 1948 he published Sexual Behavior in the Human Male (the Kinsey Report). 18500 interviews were conducted which appeared to show a wider variety of sexual behaviour than had been expected.
Famous as the discoverer of the antibiotic substance lysozyme and for isolating the antibiotic substance penicillin
A physicist and chemist of Polish upbringing and, subsequently, French citizenship. She was a pioneer in the field of radioactivity, the only person honored with Nobel Prizes in two different sciences, and the first female professor at the University of Paris. Her achievements include the creation of a theory of radioactivity (a term coined by her), techniques for isolating radioactive isotopes, and the discovery of two new elements, polonium and radium. It was also under her personal direction that the world's first studies were conducted into the treatment of neoplasms ("cancers"), using radioactive isotopes.
1871-1937. Became known as the "father" of nuclear physics. Winner of the 1908 Nobel Prize in Chemistry
1910-2004. Headed Pasadena, California's Jet propulsion Laboratory for 22 years, retiring in 1976. He was senior NASA luminary and pioneered the exploration of space.
1916-2004. Was a NZ born British molecular biologist, and Nobel Laureate who contributed research in the fields of phosphorescence, radar, isotape separation and X-Ray diffraction. He is most widely known for his work at King's College London on the structure of DNA for which he, Francis Crick and James Watson were awarded the 1962 Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine for their discoveries concerning the molecular structure of nucleic acids and its significance for information transfer in living material.
1927-2007, was one of three recipients of the Nobel Prize for Chemistry in 2000
January 11, 1906 – April 29, 2008. Chemist.

Nobel Prize-winning Biologist. His research on the inner workings of the cell gave birth to the modern field of cell biology. b. 19 November 1912 (Iasi, Romania) d. 7 October 2008 (Del Mar, California, USA)
D. May 18th 2004 -- Lived to 104. Invented acidimeter (ph meter) in 1935 which became an indispensable tool in analytical chemistry. BS Chem Eng 1922 and MS Physical Chem 1923 University Of Illinois.
Biologist 1916-2004; awarded the 1962 Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine; studied the structure of DNA.
