The Institute for Research in Biomedicine opens its doors to hundreds of citizens


The newspapers ABC and La Vanguardia have reported on the first Open Day at IRB Barcelona, to be held on Saturday 18 April. This event, which will be visited by 600 people, has been organized following the success of the crowdfunding campaign through a dance video featuring IRB Barcelona researchers, and to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the centre. Meritxell Teixidó, Antonio Zorzano, and Salvador Aznar-Benitah, scientists working in various IRB Barcelona laboratories, will give informative talks on their fields of research —cancer and metastasis, diabetes and Alzheimer’s disease, respectively. These will be followed by visits to laboratories and a science fair, both especially thought up with the general public in mind.
