Guinovart: "Les Corts is the district devoted to knowledge and health "

Interview with the director of IRB Barcelona, Joan J. Guinovart, in El Periódico on emblematic places in the Les Corts district of Barcelona and their association with his professional and personal life.

"People should make the same demands of scientists as they do of their football team", says the scientist and director of IRB Barcelona, in reference to an emblematic building in the neighbourhood, namely the Camp Nou (FC. Barcelona’s stadium). This building is located in the same district as cutting-edge scientific and educational facilities, such as the Barcelona Science Park—home to IRB Barcelona—, the science faculties of the University of Barcelona, the supercomputer MareNostrum at the Universidad Politécnica de Catalunya, and the Sant Joan de Déu Hospital.
