IRB Barcelona in the fight against COVID-1915 May, 2020
The global pandemic that we are living poses a major challenge for society at all levels. In these moments of uncertainty, IRB Barcelona has put what it knows best, cutting-edge research, at the service of the public.
IRB Barcelona’s efforts are focused on two lines of action. The first is participation in the mass PCR-based screening initiative of the Orfeu Programme, driven by the Government of Catalonia, in collaboration with the research centres CRG, IBEC and CNAG.
The second line of action is the research projects that have been launched in response to the pandemic. The different projects underway at IRB Barcelona seek to provide solutions for the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of COVID-19.
