Sponsor(s): Penny J. Gilmer, Haifa Hariri, Laura Keller
This is a breakfast for women chemists and other women scientists to gather to learn about twice-Nobelist Marie Curie and to network together to celebrate women in science.
We will meet in Kasha Laboratory Building (KLB) room 112 starting at 7:30 AM, ending at 8:30 AM on Tuesday, January 18th, 2011 to celebrate 100 years since Marie Curie received her Nobel Prize in Chemistry. Madame Curie was the first person to receive two Nobel prizes (her first was a joint one in Physics) and the first woman to receive any Nobel prize.
The Graduate Women in Science (GWIS) at Florida State University is hosting the breakfast as a fundraiser, with the cost of breakfast being $10 for professional women and $5 for graduate, undergraduate and K-12 students. We will be able to connect via Skype to women networking in the same time zone for this event, part of the International Year of Chemistry (IYC).
