Women first! Not only was she the first woman to receive the Nobel Prize but she was also one of the first women in the world to get a driving license – and for trucks too! Moreover, Marie Skłodowska-Curie was the first woman to become a professor at the Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne.
Did you know that…
– The biography of Skłodowska-Curie is required reading in Japanese schools?
– Not only Maria, but also her daughter Irene received the Nobel Prize?
– Albert Einstein claimed that he owed his scientific career to Maria?
Today, the great Pole – Maria Skłodowska-Curie would celebrate her 156th birthday. We can say with no doubt that it is she who inspires the women of today to follow a scientific career. And who else inspired Karina Wojciechowska, our researcher?
„10 years ago I was at the ELTE conference, where I saw Anna Szerling and her scientific achievements. I remember that she made a huge impression on me. I saw extraordinary female strength, ambition, and determination in her, which impressed me very much,” Karina Wojciechowska told us.
