Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science (RFUMS) is a private graduate school located in North Chicago, Illinois. It has 2,000 students in five schools: the Chicago Medical School, the College of Health Professions, the College of Pharmacy, the School of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies and the Dr. William M. Scholl College of Podiatric Medicine.

The university is named for Rosalind Franklin, the DNA crystallographer. The seal of the university is based on Photo 51, her X-ray diffraction pattern for B-DNA which was pivotal in the history of biology in the twentieth century. Rosalind Franklin captured Photo 51 in 1952 while at King's College, London. It is this photograph, acquired through 100 hours of X-ray exposure from a machine Dr. Franklin herself refined, that revealed the structure of DNA.

The university offers over 29 study programs in graduate health-related subjects. RFUMS provides PhD programs for medical and basic research.

It is located to the west of the Naval Station Great Lakes and to the south of the Captain James A. Lovell Federal Health Care Center.
