For the second year in a row, and due to the ever-present Covid-19, this year digital activities will once again be the protagonists from October 18 to 22. But we also recovered a certain presenciality with a final event, on Saturday 23, in the auditorium of the PRBB.
We present the activities planned for this new edition of the OpenPRBB, which you can follow through the networks and the #openprbb website.
How research is done in the different centers of the park
In a series of 3-minute videos, we will show you how researchers at the Neuropharmacology laboratory of the Department of Experimental and Health Sciences, Pompeu Fabra University (DCEXS-UPF) investigate behavior, the beautiful images obtained by the Cell Biology laboratory of the Center of Genomic Regulation (CRG), how the effect of pollution is studied at the Barcelona Institute for Global Health (ISGlobal), the process followed by samples to the Biobank in the Hospital del Mar Medical Research Institute (IMIM), how they create blood microvessels in the European Molecular Biology Laboratory – Barcelona (EMBL Barcelona) and how they work in the evolutionary biology laboratory of the Institute of Evolutionary Biology (IBE: CSIC-UPF).
You can see all the videos, in Catalan, Spanish or English, on our YouTube channel throughout the week.
Live virtual visits to laboratories
If you join us in Youtube Live, for 15 minutes you will be able to enter the proteomics unit of the CRG-UPF and the microscopy unit of the EMBL; ask ISGlobal researchers anything you want about the effects of air pollution, observe how they work with blood stem cells at IMIM, ask all your doubts about synthetic biology and the famous CRISPR technique to researchers from DCEXS-UPF, and learn about the tools used by IBE scientists to travel back in time millions of years ago.
From the 18th to the 22nd, don’t miss them!
Live interviews on Instagram
On the evening of the 19th, 20th and 21st we invite you to join the live conversations that the influencers Robot de Platón, Diario de una científica and La Hiperactina will have with our researchers on topics as diverse as microbial ecology (Javier del Campo, IBE), urban policies and health in developing countries (Meelan Thondoo, ISGlobal), and synthetic biology (Guillermo Martínez, EMBL-Barcelona).

- Núria Argudo from Hospital del Mar-IMIM
- Gema Revuelta from DCEXS-UPF
- Zulema Altamirano from the Women and Science Unit of the Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation
