A Spanish Gathering for International Council


More than 31 members of Salk's International Council gathered in Barcelona this spring for three days of scientific presentations and activities designed to update them on the most recent developments at the Institute.

Some of Salk's leading scientists provided overviews of their promising discoveries in stem cell research and advancements in studies related to metabolism, cancer and therapeutics for chronic disease.

Highlights from some of the group's activities included a tour of the charming medieval town of Sitges, a Gaudi architectural tour and an elegant dinner and flamenco show hosted by the Spanish government.
