Joan Guinovart: "We want to be the "Masia" (youth academy of Barcelona FC) for researchers"


Interview in La Vanguardia with Joan Guinovart, director of IRB, about the training programme “Crazy About Biomedicine” for budding young scientists. The success of its first year has brought about its extension to five programmes in other disciplines and its renaming to “Crazy About Science”.

Guinovart has been the promoter of this course, a training initiative given in English and held on Saturdays and in which 24 secondary school students, from among 430 applicants, are enrolled. This Saturday marks the start of the second year of this course.
