1. Crazy about Biomedicine


    from IRB Barcelona / Added

    Crazy about Biomedicine is a new educational program by IRB Barcelona and the Fundació Catalunya–La Pedrera launched at the end of 2012 and which began in January 2013. The name is also an apt description for the 24 high school students selected to participate in the year-long series of seminars and hands-on activities in the lab. The goal of this project is to give these first-year baccalaureate students the chance to explore the exciting world of biomedicine and challenge their inquisitive minds. More than 400 students from schools all over Catalonia applied for the programme. Through the course’s practical and theoretical sessions, the participants will have the opportunity to take a step back from their textbooks and experience what science is all about. Working alongside researchers from the Institute, they will learn what the latest questions in biomedicine are – and also see how scientists are figuring them out. Initiatives such as this one are meant to help boost interest in science among youngsters, thereby combating the worrying decline in scientific vocation across Europe.

              "The logic of modern health care does not admit rituals into it and it cannot do so." William Sax, Head of the Department of Anthropology at Heidelberg University, discusses his field work on healing rituals in the Himalayas and the difficulty of finding a place for traditional healing within the institutionalized health system and evidence-based medicine. Dr. Sax voices his concern that rituals shown to be effective such as possession may be marginalized, diluted and excluded in the push for Global Mental Health.
