Marie Curie was born Maria Sklodowska in Poland on the 7th November 1867. The early part of her life was spent as a teacher and governess in Poland before she joined her sister in Paris. It was here that she studied maths and physics at the Sorbonne gaining degrees in both subjects. At the same time she also met her future husband Pierre Curie.
As part of her doctoral thesis she decided to study radiation detected from uranium and as a result discovered the elements Polonium and Radium. In 1903 she obtain her doctorate and together with her husband and a colleague, she won the Nobel Prize for physics becoming the first woman to do so.
In 1906 shortly after her husband was killed, she became the first woman professor at the Sorbonne. In 1911 she won a second Nobel Prize but this time for chemistry, when she successfully isolated the chemical properties of Radium. Marie Curie is the only woman ever to have won two Nobel prizes.
During the First World War she dedicated her efforts to the development of the use of X-rays in medicine. After the war she concentrated her time on investigating the medical application of radioactive materials. Marie Curie died on the 4th of July 1934 from leukemia as a result of her exposure to radiation during her research.
Marie Curie can be cited as a great mind, not only for her
scientific achievements in a male dominated field, but also
for her ability to combine her research efforts with the needs
of motherhood and for her ability to continue working after
the tragic loss of her husband.
