Our colleagues from the IRSICaixa, awarded

We’d like to congratulate our colleague and friend, Dr. Javier Martínez-Picado, from the Retrovirology and Clinical Studies Group (IRSICaixa), and his team member Nuria Izquierdo-Useros, who are the winners of the 2012 Science Award given by the newspaper La Vanguardia. Within 8 finalists, the work of Martínez-Picado et al on the entrance of HIV inside the Dendritic Cells through a receptor (which might be used in future therapeutic strategies against the infection) has won, obtaining the 21% of the votes.

This award is an initiative from the Godó Group and the Foundation Catalunya-La Pedrera to disseminate the excellent research undergone in Spain. The winners will present their results in a public event to be held in La Pedrera, Barcelona, on the 9th of May.
