 November 8, 2021: Celebration of the 100 years of Marie Curie’s visit to the USA. 

As you may know, 100 years ago Marie Curie made a historical visit to the US to receive one gram of radium from the president of the USA. She came with her two daughters, invited by a journalist, Mrs. Meloney, who was able to raise 100,000 dollars for the gram of radium.

100 years later, the descendants of Marie Curie and Mrs. Meloney are meeting in Washington DC, November 8th 2021, at the Embassy of France to the United States, to celebrate the centennial anniversary of her visit. Your are invited to attend this celebration of Franco-American friendship and research collaboration throughout the last century. Please find attached the invitation card and the program.
We look forward to welcoming you to the French Embassy for this event. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact [email protected]. You may wish to register by using this link. https://lnkd.in/d2ZEzN2S
