Visit La Marató’s research area
The award-winning researchers for the Marathon have been working for three years to achieve advances that have an impact on the hope and quality of life of people with malaltia. In order to show citizens how research progresses thanks to their donations, the Foundation organises guided visits to centres where research is carried out with funds from La Marató. Between the months of March and June, hundreds of people have the opportunity to discover how the biomedical research process works, from the laboratory to the application in the patient, and what results are achieved in scientific prevention, diagnosis and treatment of the malalties studied. An initiative of high social value and divulgation that is part of the return actions of the Foundation to thank and involve the city in the results that are possible thanks to its solidarity.
