About thirty donors from La Marató de TV3 will visit the Institute of Biomedical Research of Lleida Dr. Pifarré Foundation (IRBLleida) tomorrow, Thursday, April 25. The visit will be carried out within the framework of the program Visita la recerca, which wants to bring the investigation closer to the public and to let them know first-hand some projects promoted through the aid of La Marató de TV3.
The visit will begin at 10 am, at IRBLleida, with a presentation of the program and the Institute. Afterwards, the participants will visit the laboratories and the various areas of the scientific institution, where researchers working on projects funded by La Marató de TV3 will explain the research they carry out and how they have advanced in knowledge, diagnosis and treatment of the diseases studied. In addition, attendees can see live how the process of biomedical research works, from the laboratory to the application in patients, and will know many facts and curiosities related to the research being done in Catalonia. IRBLleida currently has two active projects funded by La Marató de TV3 in their editions of heart diseases (2014).
The program Visita la recerca de La Marató aims to bring to all those who want the advances promoted by the solidarity of a project that, since 1992, has collected more than 160 million euros and has driven 757 research projects on a broad set of diseases serious and chronic.
Every year, the collaborators of La Marató de TV3 have the opportunity to visit the IRBLleida.
