Curie Institute, Warsaw
The Maria Skłodowska-Curie Institute of Oncology (Polish: Centrum Onkologii–Instytut im. Marii Skłodowskiej-Curie w Warszawie) in Warsaw was founded in 1932 as the Radium Institute by Maria Skłodowska-Curie in collaboration with the Polish Government, especially President Ignacy Mościcki.
After World War II, the Institute changed its name to "Maria Skłodowska-Curie Institute of Oncology."
It is the leading and most specialized cancer research and treatment center in Poland.
