Today, Wednesday, March 30, the room Núria Cortadellas Ramentol in the historical building of the Science and Technology Centres of the UB (CCiTUB) was inaugurated. The initiative is part of the campaign “UB rooms with female names”, promoted by the Vice-rector’s Office of Equal Opportunities and Gender in order to give visibility to the women of the University of Barcelona.

Among the participants in the event were the vice-rector for Equal Opportunities and Gender, Montserrat Puig; the director of CCiTUB, Juan Fran Sangüesa; the vice-dean of the Faculty of Biology, Albert Martínez, who read a text by Professor Mercè Durfort; Carme Carulla, former colleague of Núria Cortadellas; and Maria Barba, president of the CCiTUB Committee on Equality and Social Action, who read a text by Joan Mendoza, nanotechnology expert at CCiTUB. Núria Cortadellas’ daughters, Joana and Judit Rambla Cortadellas, unveiled the commemorative plaque. 

Núria Cortadellas Ramentol, scientist and head of Electronic Microscopy in the Medicine Campus, worked for 32 years in the CCiTUB. In 1991, she got her doctoral degree at the UB with the thesis Maduració de l’acrosoma i de la gota citoplasmàtica de l’espermatozoide de Mesocritcetus auratus: estudi ultrastructural I citoquímic. The study, together with different training stays in the United Kingdom, helped the methodological development of applied techniques to transmission electronic microscopy. When the Microscopy Service of the University joined the Science and Technology Services, the current CCiTUB, Cortadellas became the head of the Unit of Electronic Microscopy. From this period, her cutting-edge contributions to the development of cryotechniques and immunocytochemistry applied to biomedicine are especially remarkable.
