Several media echo on the 15th edition of the "Live Research" Fair, organised by the PCB (Parc Científic de Barcelona) from 3 to 6 May. 

In this fair, scientists from 11 research centres from around Catalonia move part of their labs to the CosmoCaixa Barcelona museum, where students can find out about the research done in these centres and tackle questions using the scientific method.

IRB Barcelona is participating in this event by giving a workshop entitled "type 2 diabetes and obesity", which addresses new treatments for diabetes and obesity.
