2020 has been hard. Sadly, last June, Dr. Caty Casas left us and, before the year comes to an end, we would like to dedicate to her some words of remembrance. Thanks to Drs. Esther Dalfó, Elena Galea, Lydia Giménez-Llort, Julia Lorenzo, Josefa Sabrià and Montserrat Solanas for writing this beautiful text on behalf of the Institute. We feel lucky for having had the chance to work with Caty. In memoriam.

The laboratory coordinated by Drs. Antonio Armario and Roser Nadal, together with other 28 research teams, created the Innovation Network of New Technologies in Mental Health (TECSAM). TECSAM aims to integrate all mental health research carried out in the territory, optimising the resources allocated to the valorisation and transfer of knowledge. Dr. Josep Maria Haro, from Parc Sanitari Sant Joan de Déu, will be the coordinator of the network.
Dr. Raül Andero,coordinator of the Translational mechanisms of fear memory laboratory, has been granted a Senior Research Professor position, awarded by the Catalan Institution for Research and Advanced Studies (ICREA).
