On Thursday, November 17th we participated in the XXII Week of Science and Innovation in Madrid with our activity “Visit to a CNIC laboratory to learn about the use of technology and its innovative aspects in the RESILIENCE project”.
More than 60 people of different ages, students and professionals from different sectors, attended the activity and had the opportunity of knowing our center, getting to know the Cardiac Magnetic Resonance and see live a volunteer’s heart beating, among other activities, with by Andrea Moreno, research cardiologist at the CNIC’s Translational Laboratory for Cardiovascular Imaging and Therapy.
Some of the kids shared with us their interest in doing the activity again and learning more about the heart and about research itself, which fills us with satisfaction. See you at our next activity, hopefully very soon!
Madrid Science and Innovation Week takes place from November 7 to 20 throughout the Community of Madrid: organized through the Fundación para el Conocimiento madri+d, its objectives are to attract new audiences, initially far from science, involve new agents and institutions in the scientific process, and make science visible, reaching out to public spaces.
