PEOPLE FROM POLAND
The earth would still be the centre of the universe, if it weren't for/if not for Copernicus. Marie Sklodowska Curie opened up the science of radioactivity. Polish scientists have altered the way we perceive the very large and the very small things in life. And the way we eat. The next time you check something for vitamins, remember Kazimierz Funk. He is the pioneer in the field of dietary disease.
Remarkable Polish scientists can be found everywhere. Now, why would four of them choose Trondheim? Surely, it cannot be the weather. Could it be love?
People from Poland is a new, short series in Universitetsavisa, leading up to POLEN 2006.
