Description:
Harriet Ephrussi-Taylor in her office at the Genetic Laboratory at the University of Paris. Above her desk hangs a photograph of Oswald Avery. Ephrussi-Taylor was one of the first geneticists to recognize the importance of Avery, McLeod, and McCarty's 1944 paper on DNA as the transforming principle. After receiving her doctorate from Columbia University, she transferred to Avery's laboratory at the Rockefeller Institute in the summer of 1945. She studied the role of DNA in inheritance under Avery until both left Rockefeller in 1948.
