Vote for C. elegans to enter the "Fira de Recerca en Directe 2020"

The "Fira Recerca en Directe 2020", organized by the "Parc Científic de Barcelona" in collaboration with "la Caixa" Foundation, opens the Popular Election period, so everybody can vote for the projects that they would like to see in CosmoCaixa during the days of the faire (6-9 May 2020). One of the projects is proposed by the ICMAB and the Neuroscience Institute of the UAB (INc). The project is about "C. elegans, the ideal worm as a model organism to study diseases". Until 13 December you can vote for this project! 

22 November 2019

The "Fira Recerca en Directe 2020" will take place in CosmoCaixa on 6, 7 and 8 May 2020, open for schools, and on Saturday 9 May 2020 (from 10 am to 2 pm) open for the general public. You are all invited!

The "Fira Recerca en Directe 2020" aims to show current research projects that are being carried out in Catalonia in various research fields. With the objective of bringing science to all citizens, 11 groups will transfer part of their laboratory to CosmoCaixa, in order to interact with the visitors and offer them the opportunity to experiment and resolve enigmas, following the scientific methodology.

For this edition, the organization opens the selection process to indicate the preference of the participants on the topics that have been presented to participate this year. The most voted options will have a place at the fair!

C. elegans, un cuc ideal com a model de malalties

The project about the C. elegans is within the Biomedicine area. Read here the detals of the project:

Vols conèixer com investiguem les malalties neurodegeneratives a través d’un cuc com a model de recerca?

Institut de Neurociències de la UAB (INc) + Institut de Ciència de Materials de Barcelona (ICMAB)

Amb els avenços de la ciència i la tecnologia hem aconseguit viure més temps i amb una millor qualitat de vida. Desafortunadament, la incidència de malalties neurodegeneratives relacionades amb l’envelliment va en augment, i els mecanismes de moltes d’elles encara ens són desconeguts. El cuc Caenorhabditis elegans, d’una extremada senzillesa morfològica, és un model ideal per a estudiar processos associats a aquestes malalties, que en altres models animals costaria el doble, en temps i diners. A la Fira presentarem un projecte de recerca que utilitza aquest cuc amb neurodegeneració per a desenvolupar biomaterials.

Vine i podràs conèixer i observar aquest model d’investigació biomèdica per a malalties neurodegeneratives! Vota'ns i fes que tinguem presència assegurada a la Fira Recerca en Directe! Pots votar fins el 13 de desembre 2019!
