On the occasion of International Women’s Day, which is celebrated every March 8, the Barcelona Biomedical Research Park (PRBB) opens the exhibition ‘Science portraits: a female perspective‘, which aims to give visibility to women engaged in science. These are the profiles of people essential for the advancement of research, but who rarely make the headlines and their realities, concerns and aspirations go unnoticed by much of society.
‘Science portraits: a female perspective’ consists of six collages designed by Raquel P. Sierra from ‘collagesxrach’ accompanied by a series of personal interviews already published in El·lipse.
In the exhibition you can find the portraits of:
- Ana Martín, postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Medicine and Life Sciences, Pompeu Fabra University (MELIS-UPF).
- Teresa Lobo, postdoctoral researcher at the Hospital del Mar Institute for Medical Research (IMIM).
- Alicia Abellan, PhD student at the Barcelona Institute of Global Health (ISGlobal).
- Marina Álvarez, PhD student at the Institute of Evolutionary Biology (IBE: CSIC-UPF).
- Ju Yeon Han, PhD student at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory – Barcelona (EMBL Barcelona).
- Natalia Vilor-Tejedor, postdoctoral researcher at the Center for Genomic Regulation (CRG).
The aim of the exhibition is to give voice to these young researchers as they consolidate their research careers.
The exhibition ‘Science portraits: a female perspective’ will open on Tuesday 8 March at 12 noon and will be on until 25 March. This is an initiative of the PRBB’s communication department and the Park’s Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Committee, made up of members from all centers.
