Most know Marie Curie (1876-1934)  was a true woman of science, but few knew, that she was a modern-day entrepreneur, social media influencer, a prolific fundraiser for her times.  

Marie Curie made huge contributions in the world of medicine. Curie studied x-rays and x-ray machines and wanted to build mobile x-ray units for World War 1. Polish Born-French immigrant Marie Curie was frustrated by delays in getting funding from the French military, Curie approached the women’s networking group called “Union of Women of France” and bagged funding for her first X-ray mobile jeep.,


As world war I raging, more Mobile X-ray cars were needed. She went after true angel investors, wealthy Parisian women to donate vehicles. Soon she had 20, which she outfitted with X-ray equipment. But the cars were useless without trained X-ray operators. So Curie started to train women volunteers. She recruited Twenty women for the first training course, joined by her daughter Irene Curie.

Marie Curie added two elements to the Periodic Table with her discovery. Radium and Polonium Radium and its related isotopes are being used to treat bony metastatic sites caused by breast and prostate cancers.

  She is the only woman who won the Nobel Prize twice in two different fields of science, Physics, and Chemistry.

Marie Curie has faced unprecedented backlash as a woman in her times. French Press published reports of Curie’s affair with a younger married physicist, her late husband’s assistant. The news might have raised little interest had Curie been a man, but it caused an onslaught of condemnation, severely damaged her personal and professional reputation, and threatened her second Nobel Prize. The issue is still familiar, even to modern-day women. ( See below the letter written by Albert Einstein to Marie Curie about public shaming)

Marie Curie's decades of exposure to radioactive materials left her chronically ill and became nearly blind from cataracts, and ultimately caused her death at the age of 67. 

She didn’t allow her gender to hamper her in a male-dominated world. Instead, she mobilized a small army of women to reduce human suffering.

Next time we come across a medical trailer on highways, we remind our selves the soul of Genius Marie Curie and her name. which is itched with invisible neon lights. 

An extraordinary woman who sacrificed her life for the true love of science, whom the medical community owes a great deal of gratitude.

"It was like a new world opened to me, the world of science, which I was at last permitted to know in all liberty."-MARIE CURIE

 Letter from Einstein to Marie Curie about Public Shaming:

Albert Einstein's letter to Marie curie on 23rd November 1911 told her to ignore haters.
"Highly esteemed Mrs. Curie,
Do not laugh at me for writing you without having anything sensible to say. But I am so enraged by the base manner in which the public is presently daring to concern itself with you that I absolutely must give vent to this feeling. However, I am convinced that you consistently despise this rabble, whether it obsequiously lavishes respect on you or whether it attempts to satiate its lust for sensationalism! I am impelled to tell you how much I have come to admire your intellect, your drive, and your honesty, and that I consider myself lucky to have made your personal acquaintance in Brussels. Anyone who does not number among these reptiles is certainly happy, now as before, that we have such personages among us as you, and Langevin too, real people with whom one feels privileged to be in contact. If the rabble continues to occupy itself with you, then simply don’t read that hogwash, but rather leave it to the reptile for whom it has been fabricated
With most amicable regards to you, Langevin, and Perrin, yours very truly,
- Albert Einstein
