The first baccalaureate students awarded a scholarship by the IRBLleida begin their stay at the centre

This grant programme has been designed to give young people the opportunity to come into contact with the world of biomedical research, with the aim of awakening and encouraging research vocations for the future

The six first-year Baccalaureate students awarded a grant by the Institute for Research in Biomedicine of Lleida (IRBLleida) have begun their training stay to learn about biomedical research carried out in Lleida. The students are familiarising themselves with the scientific environment and the techniques commonly used in basic biomedical research.
