The Institute for Bioengineering of Catalonia (IBEC) invites Robert Langer, and other renowned international speakers, to its annual symposium to talk about how bioengineering can shape the future of precision medicine. Langer, Professor of the Technological Institute of Massachusetts (MIT), and Director of its biomedical engineering laboratory, is considered the father of intelligent drugs delivery, the most cited engineer in the world but, especially, a global pioneer with over thousand patents and promoter of dozens of companies with great projection, which has earned him the nickname of “The Edison of Medicine”.
Nuria Montserrat and her research team at IBEC, receive funding from “Fundación BBVA” to lead a research project on COVID-19.
Montserat’s project is one of the 20 projects selected from among almost 1,000 proposals submitted to the call, which will receive a total of 2.7 million euros.
