Maria Skłodowska-Curie was the Human co-discoverer of radiation, on Earth, in the late-19th century.

A holographic simulation of Curie was among the historical personality profiles studied by The Doctor, in 2373, during his attempt to expand his personality subroutines. (VOY: "Darkling")

The 24th century Federation Type 15 shuttlepod Curie and the Type 6 shuttlecraft, Curie, both assigned to the USS Enterprise-D, were named in her honor. (TNG: "Evolution", "Parallels", "Lower Decks")

According to the Star Trek Encyclopedia (4th ed., vol. 1, p. 172), the birth and death years of physicist Marie Curie were 1867 and 1934, respectively. The other co-discoverer of radiation was her husband Pierre Curie. (The Star Trek Encyclopedia stated that together they discovered radium and polonium, which were sources of radiation.) She earned two Nobel Prizes for her study of radioactivity.
