The 17th edition of Live Research Fair organized by the Barcelona Science Park (PCB) and Obra Social la Caixa, will gather eleven research groups from Catalan institutions to create a communication space for science and society –beyond the academic and research atmosphere- and promote scientific vocations among youngsters.
This year, two IBUB research groups have participated in the presentation of their projects:
- Drugs and genes: what does science say about it? The Research Group on Neurogenetics analyzes the relation between genetics and likelihood to use addictive substances.
- Brown fat, obesity’s ally. The health effects of the brown adipose tissue in the metabolism do not stick only to thermogenesis, according to research by the Research Group on Molecular Metabolism and Disease.
