Telefónica's blog on technology, science and innovation, Think Big, devotes an article to IRB Barcelona's “Biomedicine close up” activities that will be presented at the first YoMo Barcelona on 1 March (from 09:30 to 16:30).

At YoMo, IRB Barcelona will launch a fluorescence microscope named LegoLish-Mot (Lego Light Sheet Microscopy-Motorized), and will present interactive activities using optical microscopes to allow students to observe biological samples of tissues in healthy and diseased states (cancer and diabetes), as well as development disorders in the fruit fly, Drosophila melanogaster.
