The online magazine Qestudio, which aims to guide young people on their choice of training, highlights in an interview the career of the young researcher Nuria Aiguabella. IRB Barcelona has a large and active PhD student community and annually makes a public call for grants addressed to graduate students who wish to perform their doctoral studies in the centre. By obtaining this grant, Nuria has become a member of IRB Barcelona and has begun working with prostaglandins in the Asymmetric Synthesis Group, headed by Antoni Riera. The interview covers topics ranging from why she opted for chemistry at the end of secondary school school to what motivates her in the day-to-day activities of the lab.
