10 years of research stories supported by the Botin Foundation

A book entitled “28 stories of science and biomedical innovation in Spain” gathers the stories of the researchers supported by the Botin Foundation over the past ten years. CSIC Research Prof Laura M. Lechuga, Group Leader at ICN2, is among the outstanding researchers who share their thoughts and research experiences.

Research saves lives, reduces costs and creates wealth. The Botin Foundation’s operating model aspires to transcend the traditional linear process of invention-patent-licence-commercialization by developing an iterative and multidirectional scheme where each stakeholder contributes the best of their knowledge, experience and resources for mutual benefits.

The Foundation has worked alongside some of Spain’s finest scientific minds to help turn their discoveries into development and highly skilled jobs. Now a book gathers the stories of the researchers who have participated in its Program over the past ten years: 28 stories of science and biomedical innovation in Spain.

CSIC Research Prof Laura M. Lechuga, Group Leader of the ICN2 Nanobiosensors and Bioanalytical Applications (NANOB2A) Group, is among the outstanding researchers who share their thoughts and research experiences.  The 28 stories condense hope and ambition, enthusiasm, grit, disappointment and success, as told by people who have decisively contributed to the international role that biomedicine plays today.
