Marie Curie was a Polish and naturalized French Chemist and Physicist. She developed the theory of radioactivity, technique for isolating radioactive isotopes. She also discovered the elements polonium and radium. During world war 1 she developed mobile radiography units which provided x-ray services to the field hospitals. Today mobile X-ray units are a life saving part of health care.
Marie Curie was the first woman to win a Nobel Prize and the only woman to win twice. She founded the Curie Institutes in Paris and in Warsaw. Sadly she died of aplastic anemia caused by her exposure to radiation from her research in radiology.
This week we pay tribute to this iconic woman who contributed so much to the field of Science.
