“After 10+ years at IRB, the idea of 'together we can make great things happen' is going to stick with me,” says Francisco Lozano

Many moons have passed since 2006 when Francisco Lozano (b. Madrid, 1968, better known as Curro) moved to a recently launched IRB Barcelona to head the Information Technology Services. Thanks to Curro and his team's contributions over eleven years, IRB Barcelona now boasts developed IT strategies and state-of-the-art, competitive technologies and clusters. He has recently embarked on his next career move: the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) of the World Health Organization in Lyon (France) has hired him as their Head of Information Technology Services. 

“At IRB Barcelona I have met people who are truly passionate about science,” says Jordi Coste

After spending three years as a Visiting Student in the Complex Metabolic Diseases and Mitochondria Lab led by Antonio Zorzano, Jordi Coste (b. Barcelona, 1993) is about to embark on new projects in the United States. This young scientist is leaving behind what he considers “a big family” at IRB Barcelona to pursue a career more focused on clinical counselling. But before crossing the pond, he has found time to look back on his years with us: “The Institute has helped me to improve my critical and logical thinking skills, and this will definitely help me in the future.”
