Debate

Free

In this session, Núria Montserrat (ICREA – IBEC), expert in the new strategies of regenerative medicine, and Javier Martínez-Picado (ICREA – IrsiCaixa), expert in HIV research, will speak with the journalist Cristina Sáez about the state of research aiming to find a cure for COVID-19.

The scientific community is working to produce, as soon as possible, an effective treatment for COVID-19. In this race against time, scientists from different disciplines around the planet are working together on a great variety of proposals and strategies. What treatments are they researching? Will it be possible  to find a cure soon? And, if a treatment is found, who will have access to it?
Núria Montserrat, who is researching a drug that would prevent the virus from infecting new cells, and Javier Martínez-Picado, a specialist in HIV virology and immunology, will speak with Cristina Sáez about the challenges faced by scientists with the urgent need to find a cure in this pandemic.

This session is jointly organised with the Catalan Institute for Research and Advanced Studies (ICREA).
