A year later, pierre and marie would win a nobel prize in physics for their earlier work on radioactivity he died shortly after, and she was left to continue her work on polonium and radium alone in 1911, she became the first person, male or female, to win two nobel prizes. Marie sklodowska curie (1867–1934) was the first person ever to receive two nobel prizes: the first in 1903 in physics, shared with pierre curie (her husband) and henri becquerel for the discovery of the phenomenon of radioactivity, and the second in 1911 in chemistry for the discovery of the radioactive elements polonium and radium. Marie curie published a research paper on her discovery, an unusual step for a woman in 1896 pierre set aside his own research and joined marie in her work by the summer of 1898, the curies co-authored a paper on a new element, polonium.
