The research group on Mitochondrial Neuropathology in ‘La Fira de la Recerca en Directe’

The Science Fair “Fira de la Recerca en Directe” started today.  In this event, which takes place at CosmoCaixa Museum, different research groups show to high school students and to the general public the most outstanding research conducted in Catalonia.  

Only twelve research groups have the opportunity to participate, and one of them is the INc-UAB research group on Mitochondrial Neuropathology, led by Dr. Albert Quintana. The selection was done through a voting system reviewed by a scientific committee.

The Science Fair, which opens for the general public on Saturday, is an excellent opportunity to introduce neuroscience to society and to show the insights of mitochondrial diseases through experiments and hands-on experiences.
