“I’d like to thank everyone who recognizes the importance of science and supports it with donations. I think they set a great example.”

The pathway to discovery

Children are inherently curious, eager to learn about the world around us, passionate about discovery, imaginative and creative. If we nurture these traits in our kids, many end up choosing science as a career.

IRB Barcelona offers inquisitive young scientists an ideal environment where they can feed their talent for science, under the guidance and mentorship of renowned researchers. They have access to scientific activities and services of the highest calibre, and the opportunity to collaborate with researchers from around the world.

Young researchers at IRB Barcelona embark on their careers with passion, dedication, hard work and perserverance to understand diseases such as cancer and metastasis, diabetes, Alzheimer’s and rare disorders.

Please give our young researchers a chance begin their careers, to start working today to make the discoveries of tomorrow.

Make your donation today, for the FUTURE.
