Marie Curie (prima di sposarsi Marie Skłodowska), nata il 7 novembre 1867 a Varsavia e morta il 4 luglio 1934 a Sancellemoz è stata una chimica e fisica francese di origine polacca.
Insieme al marito Pierre Curie ed a Henri Becquerel, Marie ricevette - prima donna della storia - il premio Nobel per la fisica nel 1903 "in riconoscimento dei servizi straordinari che essi hanno reso nella loro ricerca congiunta sui fenomeni radioattivi scoperti dal professor Henri Becquerel".
Nel 1995 le spoglie di Marie Curie furono trasferite, prima donna della storia, sotto la cupola del Pantheon di Parigi in segno di onore per i suoi meriti.

Marie Curie (Polish Maria Skłodowska-Curie, November 7, 1867 – July 4, 1934) was a Polish-French physicist and chemist.
Together with Pierre Curie and Henri Becquerel, she was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics, 1903: "in recognition of the extraordinary services they have rendered by their joint researches on the radiation phenomena discovered by Professor Henri Becquerel".
Eight years later, she received the Nobel Prize in Chemistry, 1911 "in recognition of her services to the advancement of chemistry by the discovery of the elements radium and polonium, by the isolation of radium and the study of the nature and compounds of this remarkable element".

Marie Curie, now at the highest point of her fame, and, from 1922, a member of the Academy of Medicine, devoted her researches to the study of the chemistry of radioactive substances and the medical applications of these substances.
One of Marie Curie's outstanding achievements was to have understood the need to accumulate intense radioactive sources, not only for the treatment of illness but also to maintain an abundant supply for research in nuclear physics; the resultant stockpile was an unrivaled instrument until the appearance after 1930 of particle accelerators.
