Joanne Chory’s visit to CRAG explained at the newspaper AraAfter receiving the Princesa de Asturias de Investigación Científica y Técnica 2019 award in Oviedo (Spain), Joanne Chory visited CRAG.
Transgenic plants able to diminish between 20 and 46% the amount of CO2 released into the atmosphere are the bet of Joanne Chory, researcher form the Salk institute (California, USA) that came to Spain last October to receive the “Princess of Asturias Award 2019”. She named this project “Audacity”, and is not difficult to imagine why.
Taking advantage of her stay in Spain, CRAG invited this brilliant scientist to give a seminar at its premises and to give a lay talk at La Pedrera Auditorium (Barcelona). Chory’s visit to CRAG was covered by the Catalan newspaper Ara with a full page article. It was a fruitful scientific interchange, especially with Ana Caño-Delgado, who had spent 3 years in Chory’s lab in the USA during her professional training, and people from her research group.
The Spanish newspaper La Vanguardia also published an interview to Joanne Chory in its printed edition.
You can watch Joanne Chory's lay talk in La Pedrera in English and in Catalan.
