The newspapers La Gaceta de Salamanca and Tribuna Universitaria have interviewed Núria López-Bigas, ICREA researcher and head of the Biomedical Genomics Lab at the Institute for Research in Biomedicine (IRB Barcelona), on the occasion of the award of the “Doctores Diz Pintado” Prize, which she will receive in person on 28 January.  López-Bigas is the first female scientist to be presented with this prize. Referring to this point, the researcher says, “It is an honour to receive the prize. Being the first woman to do so highlights just how much work has to be done to achieve equality with respect to appraisement and visibility”.
