The three lives of Marie Curie

Dr Serge Plattard examines how through the development of radiotherapy methods and instruments Marie Curie led the way in the fight against cancer.

The life of Marie Curie was a continuous interweave between passion for science, people and action. As we celebrate the centenary of her Nobel Proze for Chemistry in International Year of Chemistry, Dr Serge Plattard, the Counsellor for Science and Technology at the French Embassy, will examine how her understanding of nuclear radioactivity opened a completely new field in physics; how, by introducing mobile X-ray units in World War 1, she helped save tens of thousands of lives and through the development of radiotherapy methods and instruments how she led the way in the fight against cancer.
