The Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry of the University of Valencia will welcome the XI Congress of Biomedical Research between the 8th and the 10th of February. Gender equality in science will be promoted through different activities such as debates, conferences, workshops or round tables and the role of women in the development of biomedical research will be made more visible.

The XI edition of the Biomedical Research Congress (CIB for its acronym in Spanish) was opened with an inaugural panel  by the Rector of the University of Valencia, Mavi Mestre; the dean of the Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry, Francisco Javier Chorro; the Dean of the Faculty of Biological Science, Carmen Bañó; the presidents of the congress’ Organizer Committee, Ana Blas y Álvaro Blázquez; and the director of the Clinical Institute of Hematological and Oncological Diseases of the Clinic Hospital of Barcelona, Álvaro Urbano, who was also in charge of giving the inaugural conference.

This congress is a meeting point for students, researchers and scientists to promote critical thinking. Its objectives are to create an international meeting point that favours the knowledge exchange between different countries, facilitating the growth of the scientific knowledge and adapt the content to current topics to provide the information of the student community. Furthermore, there is additional value in the fact that it is fully created by students and, therefore, it becomes a tool that helps them during their education.

This year, in the programmed activities we can find different lectures and round tables –apart from the one by Álvaro Urbano previously mentioned-  that will address topics such as genomics and music to fight diseases, personal genomes or the CAR-T cell therapy. This will be complemented with over forty workshops that vary from electron microscopy to philosophy underlaying science, in which the participants of the congress will be able to analyse semen quality, see ophthalmological emergencies or analyse proteins, among a long list of possibilities.
