About Marie Curie

Marie Curie, the pioneering Polish-born French chemist, was the first person to win Nobel Prizes in two different fields. She was born in Warsaw in 1867. No Polish school would admit a woman, so she worked as a governess, sending her sister through medical
school in France. Her sister, in turn, sent her to the Sorbonne, where she met
her husband, Pierre Curie. Together they studied radiology, discovering two new
chemical elements and inventing the term “radioactivity.” She died in
1934.
