Curie and curiouser

Chemist Emma Martín Rodríguez, a post-doctoral researcher at Concordia University in Montreal, Quebec, is to carry on her work with a prestigious research fellowship inaugurated in the name of pioneering French scientist and Nobel laureate Marie Curie. Rodríguez is one of about 100 scholars from across Europe to receive the Marie Curie Actions Research Fellowship, which is sponsored by the European Commission, and will help to foster her research in nanoparticles for biomedical applications. Receiving this fellowship is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity in a scientific career, says Martín Rodríguez.
