TVE, the local TV channel Betevé and the newspaper La Vanguardia, among other media, have echoed on news about an escape room, “The #MetastasisChallenge against the clock”, organised by IRB Barcelona. In this game, participants have to solve a scientific puzzle in a real research lab. The proceeds from this activity will go to the #MetastasisChallenge, IRB Barcelona’s fundraising campaign in support of biomedical research into this disease.
