Coinciding with International Book Day and Sant Jordi, the Institute for Bioengineering of Catalonia (IBEC) launches the first IBBI comic strip, the first Bioengineering superhero. In this first adventure, IBBI will use its superpowers to generate kidney organoids. This character aims to bring closer bioengineering to the non-scientific public, in an understandable and fun way, one of the disciplines that will mark the medicine of the future.
The Institute for Bioengineering of Catalonia (IBEC) is once again accredited as a member of the Network of Units of Scientific Culture and Innovation (UCC+i), through the Spanish Foundation for Science and Technology (FECYT), under the Ministry of Science and Innovation. IBEC’s UCC+i promotes actions and programs for scientific communication, dissemination and education.
