One more year, and this is the 6th edition, the association Quart es Ciencia (Quart is Science) has celebrated the Science Week in Quart de Poblet (Valencia, Spain). The current president of the association is Dr. Carmen Espinós. Many activities have been carried out: Cinema Forum, workshops for children, exhibitions, and other. The speeches have been focused on current issues such as alcoholism in teenagers by Dr. Consuelo Guerri, breast cancer by Dr, Ana Lluch, energy systems models by Dr. Avelino Corma, and healthy food by Dr. José Vicente Gil. An honour to have all these researchers during the Science Week in Quart!!!
About a year ago we started a crowdfunding campaign in collaboration with the association for the funding of medical research, INDACEA: http://indacea.org/, and we have achieved it!!!! This project aims to generate a tool for genetic diagnosis of patients with hereditary ataxia or familial spastic paraplegias. Many thanks to all the people who have helped us get the funding to start this study!!! J
