Hodgkin was educated at Sir John Lehman School, Beccles and Somerville College, Oxford. Apart from two years research at Cambridge University after graduation she remained in Oxford for the rest of her career. She combined teaching chemistry at Somerville with research at the highest level. She became University lecturer and demonstrator in 1946, University Reader in X-ray crystallography in 1956 and from 1960 to official retirement in 1977, Wolfson Research Professor of the Royal Society. Hodgkin was elected FRS in 1947 and was awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1964 for her determinations by x-ray techniques of the structures of important biochemical substances.
