Open PRBB 2022: On October 8, we reopen the doors to the public

After two years of pandemic next October 8th from 10:00 to 14:30h comes a new edition of the OpenPRBB to see and hear the science first hand. The different research centers of the PRBB will offer a wide range of free activities for the whole family.

On Saturday morning, children over 12 years old will be able to learn about science from its protagonists with guided tours. From 10:00 to 13:30h we have prepared several routes that will simultaneously tour the building and visit different laboratories. In the case of the Hospital del Mar Medical Research Institute (IMIM-Hospital del Mar) you will be able to visit the Clinical Trials Unit, the molecular cancer therapy, stem cell and cancer, critical pathology laboratories, the Neurovascular research group and the Biobank where each of them will explain what their work consists of and the research they are currently carrying out.

Likewise, IMIM is once again organizing the workshop "Measure your cardiovascular health" where we will calculate your risk of suffering from coronary heart disease in the next 10 years and what you can do to prevent it. We will also participate in the organization of a new workshop called "Discover the Animal Facility" in which we will explain how research is done with animal models and what facilities they live in? We propose to the visitors to become researchers and make a fictitious tour through an animal facility.

Finally, Dr. Judit Villar, researcher of the research group on infectious pathology and antimicrobials of IMIM and assistant physician of the Infectious Diseases Service of the Hospital del Mar and head of the International Health Unit of the same center will participate in one of the scientific talks organized entitled "Reasons for not getting vaccinated".

Mothers and fathers who wish to visit the building and come accompanied by children between 6 and 12 years of age, will have at their disposal the small space, where the children will be able to enjoy games and activities. To see the program and participate in the visits: EventBrite

This Open Day for all citizens is possible thanks to the participation of almost 200 volunteers from the different centers of the PRBB. Our thanks to all of them.

Don't miss the PRBB Open Day, we are waiting for you!
