Un reencuentro de científicos para celebrar 25 años de investigación en biotecnología

El primero de los actos que celebran el 25 aniversario del Centro Nacional de Biotecnología del CSIC (CNB-CSIC) se celebrará el próximo viernes 5 de mayo. En la jornada participarán como ponentes antiguos miembros del CNB-CSIC que se han convertido en líderes en investigación e innovación biotecnológica. Presidirán la inauguración del acto la Secretaria de Estado Carmen Vela, el vicepresidente de CSIC Jose Ramón Urquijo y el Rector de la UAM José María Sanz, junto a miembros del equipo directivo del CNB-CSIC. El encuentro servirá de marco para la inauguración de una exposición que relata los 25 años de historia del centro.


Programa 5 mayo RedEl viernes 5 de mayo se celebrará en el Centro Nacional de Biotecnología del CSIC (CNB-CSIC) un congreso con motivo del 25 aniversario del centro. Siete científicos que se encuentran entre los mayores exponentes de la biotecnología internacional participarán como ponentes invitados. Los siete han pasado parte de su vida profesional previa como investigadores del CNB-CSIC.

La presentación de la jornada correrá a cargo de Carmen Vela (Secretaria de Estado de Investigación, Desarrollo e Innovación), Jose Ramón Urquijo (Vicepresidente de Organización y Relaciones Institucionales de CSIC), José María Sanz (Rector de la Universidad Autónoma de Madrid) y Fernando Rojo (Director del CNB-CSIC).

El evento servirá de marco para la inauguración de una exposición que explica la historia del centro y destaca los principales hitos científicos alcanzados en sus laboratorios. La instalación, realizada con el apoyo económico de FECYT, pretende acercar a la población los avances alcanzados gracias a estos 25 años de investigación biotecnológica.

La primera parte del día contará con cuatro científicos reconocidos en todo el mundo que, tras pasar por el CNB-CSIC, han continuado su carrera en otros centros de investigación. A lo largo de la mañana Manuel Serrano (IRB Barcelona y CNIO), Alfonso Valencia (BSC-CNS), Maite Huarte (CIMA-UNAV) y Junkal Garmendia, (IdAb-CSIC-UPNA) hablarán de su trabajo y evolución profesional después de dejar el CNB-CSIC.

En la sesión de la tarde participarán Enrique Samper (NIM Genetics), Laureano Simón (Oncomatrix) y Zoltan Penzes (Ceva Santé Animale), tres ponentes que en la actualidad desarrollan su trabajo en exitosas empresas con base científica.

Desde su fundación el 9 de julio de 1992, el CNB-CSIC ha pasado de tener unas decenas de trabajadores a contar con más de 650 profesionales que trabajan para mejorar la salud, la alimentación y el medio ambiente. Siete directores diferentes han formado parte de la historia del centro que, a día de hoy, está organizado en seis departamentos y cuenta con 70 grupos de investigación.

La jornada pretende celebrar las aportaciones del centro a la ciencia española y reunir a las personas que han hecho posible estos 25 años de investigación en biología y biotecnología.
