The programme Eth Maitin d’Aran, broadcasted by Catalunya Ràdio, has interviewed Meritxell Teixidó, research associate with the Design, Synthesis and Peptide and Protein Structure Lab at the Institute for Research in Biomedicine (IRB Barcelona), on the occasion of the International Day of Women and Girls in Science. Teixidó participated in this programme before giving a talk to students at the Instituto Pont de Suert. “Girls may know of a famous female scientist but don´t perceive a scientific career as something within their possibilities.  The opportunity to meet someone who comes to your school and explains it directly to them makes this career path an option for them,” says the researcher.
