150th anniversary of the birth of Marie Curie
Marie Curie, who was born 150 years ago today, was the first woman to win a Nobel Prize and the first person to win two. She was awarded the 1903 Prize for Physics for her work on radioactivity, and received the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1911 for the isolation of a previously unknown element – radium. On the 150th anniversary of this great scientist’s birth, Professor Katia Parodi, who holds the Chair of Experimental Physics and Medical Physics at LMU, will give a talk on “The Impact of Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions in Support of Education and Research on Ion-Beam Cancer Therapy”.
The lecture forms part of “Celebrating the 150th Birth Anniversary of Marie Skłodowska-Curie”, which includes contributions from the University of Liverpool, CERN in Geneva and LMU Munich.
