She was the first European woman to earn a doctorate in the sciences; the first woman to receive a Nobel Prize (for the discovery of radioactivity), the first woman to teach at the Sorbonne, and the first person to receive a second Nobel Prize (a feat not to be repeated for another 50 years). Join us on Sunday, February 4 and learn the story, discoveries and achievements of one of our greatest scientists of all times.
