«At IRB Barcelona I found a solid scientifc project, and the opportunity to 'contaminate' myself working with biophysicists. The solvency of the Institute, the competitiveness of the science together with the unparalleled quality of lifeof the city convinced me that this was the best choice for my career.»

«The Barcelona BioMed Conferences series provide an inspiring forum to discuss great science from a range of fields – in a spectacular setting. The conferences break down traditional boundaries of scientific fields and bring different players together for a new perspective. A great opportunity, especially for younger researchers. Definitely keep an eye on this series.»

«As we improve our understanding of the molecular bases of disease, the possibilities of intervening with molecular tools are multiplying. We need a XXI-century chemistry that is subtle and complex, and that will be able to design any type of molecule. One that is not limited to what we currently have to see if it works, but that will be able to tailor specific molecules from natural products. In other words, a chemistry that is capable of pushing the limits of complexity of synthesis.»
