Welcome to CICATA research center and breakfast service

Short review on the role of Marie Curie in chemistry, and women contributions to chemical discoveries that benefit humankind.

We warmly acknowledge the participation of the following chemist women: Dra. Delia Quintana; Dra. Ruth Pedroza; Dra. Arlette Richaud; MTA Mónica Centeno; MTA Cecilia Chacón; MC Rosario Olguín.
