Dorothy Crowfoot Hodgkins is best known for discovering the structure of penicillin, insulin, and B12.  She used a process called x-ray crystallography, similar to how Rosalind Franklin discovered the structure of DNA. And in case you were worried, she did receive a Noble Prize for her work.  She's even on a Britrish stamp.
