Open Day 2019
Saturday, October 5, 2019 - ONLY IN THE MORNING!
The Barcelona Biomedical Research Park, in its 12th edition, will open our doors to the public on the 5th of October. PRBB scientists and staff will explain what we do, how we do it and where we do it. We will play with science, talk about the projects we work on, show you our laboratories as well as the equipment that we use and walk through the building.
We propose you to spend the day having fun with science and getting to know a large infrastructure of the city and those who work in it.
And everything for free and for the whole family.

Measure your cardiovascular health
Do you have healthy habits? You keep in shape? Do you follow a Mediterranean diet? We will calculate your risk of suffering from coronary heart disease in the next 10 years and what you can do to prevent it.
Get out the tongue: the oral microbiome game
Stick out your tongue is a card game co-created by scientists and non-scientists. The objective is to understand the relationship between the microorganisms of the mouth that live in symbiosis with us, and the life habits of people. Come to play some rounds: you will want to keep your balance to take care of your microbiota and have good oral health!
Who does science?
Do you know the name of many famous scientists? And of scientists? Science is made by curious and observant people, regardless of gender, but there are many biases that start at an early age and that we continue to have when we grow up, sometimes without even realizing it. Come discover if you have an implicit gender bias or not and let your children discover who really does the science!
