A century ago, Marie Curie became the first scientist ever to win 2 Nobel Prizes. Her spectacular scientific career was achieved despite the obligations of family, extreme prejudice against women, a relentless search for research funding, and the constant battle for recognition that was her due.

Curie Club was founded to help ensure that all scientists are given the opportunity to help shape the future. Curie Club hosts stimulating lectures, career development support, and lively debates to support and inspire the next generation of scientists.


Join us for the upcoming Curie Club and ChemSAC Coffee Chat 

         Date and Time: Tuesday, June 20, 2023 - 10 am to 12 pm

          Location: Henry Eyring Building (HEB), Room 2040




Building an Inclusive Community

We support all scientists pursuing careers in science. We aim to help all scientists balance the competing challenges of family, the pursuit of scientific discovery, and the battle for research funding.

Visit the laboratory dedicated to Marie Curie and women scientists in the new Thatcher Biological and Biophysical Chemistry (TBBC) building. Curie Club members' names are displayed in the TBBC. 



Supporting Inclusion in Science

Funds can support the creation of the Curie U Chemistry Graduate Fellowships, the Curie Endowed Chair, or other programs that build and retain an inclusive community in our department. Curie Club will promote student success and support the quality, strength, and diversity of scientific research and the U Chemistry's outstanding contribution to science.
