Several media have reported on the presentation ceremony of the ‘Doctores Diz Pintado’ National Cancer Prize, in which Núria López-Bigas, head of the Biomedical Genomics Lab at IRB Barcelona, received her award. During the event, López-Bigas called for all political parties to sign "a national pact for science involving long-term decisions". 

According to the scientist, "Governments are in power for short period of time, 4 years at the most, but science is a long-term national and social investment and it must not be conditioned by which party is governing or if we have new elections”.
