IRB Researcher Sandra Blázquez is interviewed by Angelata Ferrer Institute students for IDWGS!

In order to celebrate the 2023 International Day of Women and Girls in Science (IDWGS), our project partners of IRB organised a lot of promotional activities both for institutional communication and for external audiences!

The goal has been to bring into the spotlight the significant impact of female researchers to the overall work of the Institution and the importance of integrating gender dimension into research. In addition, the IRB, aligned with the CALIPER’s ambition, took advantage of IDWGS 2023 to bring female young students closer to STEM sciences!

In this context, the IRB produced a promo interview featuring the young researcher Sandra Blázquez, a PhD student at IRB’s Inflammation, Tissue Plasticity and Cancer lab, being interviewd by three pupils from Institute Angelata Ferrer in Barcelona.

The interview took place in the facilities of IRB, where the young students had the opportunity to experience a day in work of Ms Blázquez and ask her many questions about her motives, her dreams and challenges in her field.
