The rose, the dragon… and the PRBB

After more than a year of the pandemic, of volunteers creating protective material of tests and PCRs, of emptying the building for months, of having to hold scientific meetings by videoconference and an #openPRBB in the distance, of the staggered return of residents and the slow reopening of the laboratories with the necessary restrictive measures, of the generalized fatigue and isolation until the arrival of the vaccines make us perhaps, see the light at the end of the tunnel …

This year, on St. George’s Day, many of the residents of the  Barcelona Biomedical Research Park (PRBB) had a good reason to smile.

Monica, Marta and Maruxa have been handing out roses during the morning to people arriving at the park. Many of these researchers, who have thus begun a new day of work a little happier and brighter, have posted photos of their roses on the networks, with the hashtags #SantJordiPRBB and #somPRBB.

Amongst them, there’s this photo of the month by Roni Wright, researcher at the Centre for Genomic Regulation (CRG), who to accompany her rose has made a small paper dragon. Thanks Roni, and happy St Jordi everyone!

You can see all the images on Twitter and Instagram (#somPRBB #SantJordiPRBB).
