Nadia Calviño, First Vice President of the Government and Minister of Economic Affairs, and Maria Eugènia Gay, Government Delegate in Catalonia visited on July 20 Gate2Brain at the Sant Joan de Déu Hospital in Barcelona, where Dr. Miquel Pons, Medical Director and Jaume Pérez Payerols, Director of Innovation also attended the memorable gathering.
During this meeting, Gate2Brain was able to convey its enthusiasm, which inspired the creation of a technology that enhances drug delivery to the brain, being the field of pediatric brain tumors the first indication that will benefit from this technology.
The visit also included a tour to the recently opened SJD Pediatric Center, led by Dr. Jaume Mora, its Scientific Director. A pediatric center “by all and for all” (patients, researchers, doctors, health personnel and companies such as Gate2Brain) all working to bring better treatments to children around the world.
This encounter was an excellent treat to celebrate Gate2Brain’s second anniversary. An initiative to bring medicines beyond barriers, starting from the pediatric population.
