International Women’s and Girls' Day in Science

To promote scientific vocations in girls, it is essential that they have real references, and for this, this Thursday, two of the scientists of the CBGP will tell us what they are dedicated to and what has been their trajectory to get here.

About CBGP

The Centre for Plant Genomics and Biotechnology (CBGP) is a joint research institute UPM / INIA whose mission is to carry out fundamental and strategic research in plant science and associated microorganisms. In particular, research lines are focused on the study of plant development, their nutritional mechanisms and their interaction with the environment. The knowledge acquired is used to address the main problems of agriculture and forestry today, as well as to develop new technological solutions.

CBGP was created with a double goal: to carry out the most advanced research aimed at understanding plant function, and to contribute to fulfil the needs of the economic agents within the agriculture, forestry and environment productive sectors that are potential users of this research. CBGP also seeks to have an educational role and strives to become a reference centre for training of both scientists and technicians in the fields of plant biotechnology and genomics, an area not fully developed in Spain at present. The CBGP (UPM-INIA) has been recognized by the Spanish Research Agency as a Severo Ochoa Center of Excellence, the highest institutional recognition of excellence in scientific research in Spain.

The CBGP develops 2 COVID research projects led by Dr. Díaz-Perales and Dr. Fernando Ponz.
