Our PhD student Lilibeth Arias is now at the Faber Faber, the Arts, Sciences and Humanities Residency of Catalonia, thanks to an individual residencies grant. Faber is a place in Olot for professionals from the Arts, Sciences or Humanities fields (writers, translators, artists of diverse disciplines, scholars and scientists and so on) where they can apply to go to work on their personal projects for a short time. Lili is a young scientist and PhD student at our unit (based in the Germans Trias i Pujol Health Sciences Research Institute Foundation, IGTP). Graduated in Biomedical Sciences from the University of Barcelona and with a master’s degree in Cytogenetics and Reproductive Biology from the Autonomous University of Barcelona, she has been participating in two projects funded by the European Commission’s H2020 programme (H2020), called TBVAC2020 and EMI-TB, for the last three years. Both projects aim to develop and evaluate new tuberculosis vaccine candidates. Within the framework of this professional activity, she is preparing her doctoral thesis based on the study of the influence of comorbidities and vaccinations on the course of tuberculosis disease.a scientific article based on the study of the influence of obesity, vaccination and repeated infection on an experimental model of tuberculosis disease. During her week at the Faber Residency, she will finish a scientific manuscript based on the study of the influence of obesity, vaccination and repeated infection on an experimental model of tuberculosis disease, an article which will be crucial for her research career. We are grateful to Faber initiative and personnel for this great opportunity!
