Angel R. Nebreda, ICREA Research professor and group leader of the Signalling and Cell Cycle Laboratory at IRB Barcelona, was invited by Radio Benavente (Cadena SER) to talk about his career as a Molecular Biologist, his research in cell biology and his ERC Proof of Concept grant to investigate new breast cancer therapies.

During the interview, Angel R. Nebreda gives an advice to young students who want to become scientists: “Scientific research demands a lot of curiosity, you have to be interested in the unknown, ask when you don't understand something, and be strongly motivated”.

In response to a question about the role of science in Spanish society, he says: “We have to communicate to society that science is not only interesting and can be fascinating, but is something that is necessary and useful to society”.
