Last year, on the occasion of International Women’s Day celebrated on 8 March, the Barcelona Biomedical Research Park (PRBB) launched the exhibition ‘Portraits of women in science‘. This year we have resumed this series that allows us to give visibility to women in the research world. Profiles that, although they are not usually the visible face in the media, are indispensable for research.
Moreover, this initiative not only allows us to put the spotlight on female figures in science, but also to get to know their concerns, aspirations and realities by getting closer to their more personal side.
After the publication of 6 profiles last year, the new edition of ‘Portraits of women in science’ brings us six new collages designed by Raquel P. Sierra from ‘collagesxrach‘. And 6 new personal interviews, already published in El·lipse, to each of the protagonists that accompany them.
In the exhibition you can find the portraits of:
- Patricia de Llobet, research technician at the Barcelona Institute for Global Health (ISGlobal).
- Marina Matsumiya, postdoctoral researcher at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory – Barcelona (EMBL Barcelona).
- Neus Martínez, researcher at the Hospital del Mar Medical Research Institute (IMIM).
- Cristiana Sigona, lab manager at the Institute of Evolutionary Biology (IBE: CSIC-UPF).
- Nerea Montedeoca, PhD student at the Department of Medicine and Life Sciences, Pompeu Fabra University (MELIS-UPF).
- Ariadna Montero, alumni of the Centre for Genomic Regulation (CRG).
The exhibition ‘Portraits of women in science’ opened on Wednesday 8 March and can be visited until 31 March in the lobby of the Park. 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 the centres.
