Barcelona Science Festival 2018

The 12th Barcelona Science Festival was celebrated at the Ciutadella Park last weekend, organized by the Barcelona City Council. Once again, researchers from our institute shared with the public the work they are doing at their laboratories and had the chance to answer people’s doubts and questions.

Dr. Esther Dalfó, from the Cell Signaling research group, talked about how C. elegans, a small worm, can be an efficient animal model to study neurodegeneration. Aina Calls, Maria Puigdomènech and Alba Sànchez, PhD students of the Neuroregeneration and Plasticity research group, showed the role women had had in neuroscience throughout history; and Joan Jiménez, student of our PhD program at Vall d’Hebron Research Institute, explained the relationship between cardiovascular and cerebral health.

Despite the chances of rain, thousands of people went to the Park during the weekend, to learn about Science and to know about the research that is been done in Barcelona.

Dr. Arnaldo Parra finalist of the 2018 Young Investigator Award

Dr. Arnaldo Parra, member of the research group on Neurobiology of Alzheimer’s disease, has been selected as a finalist of the 2018 Young Investigator Prize, awarded by the Catalan Society of Biology (SCB), for his PhD research project. His investigations, directed by Dr. Carles Saura, were focused on the role that CRTC1/CREB plays in hippocampus-dependent memory processing using mice models of Alzheimer’s disease.

This prize is an academic recognition to what is considered the best PhD thesis defended in a Catalan university in the biology field.

Congratulations and we hope best luck for the final decision!

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.
