Polish Science and Medicine
Marie Curie was a famed Polish-born, French-naturalized scientist who studied radiology and was awarded two Nobel Prizes for her work on radium and for the discovery of two elements, radium and polonium (named after Poland). She contributed, and indeed drove them into the battlefield, to the use of mobile X-ray units during WWI, establishing the importance of X-ray use in medicine. She later founded an institute of radiation in Warsaw, which was destroyed in 1944 and rebuilt by 1947.
