Presentation to the public of the story "Les aventures de la Bio i la Medi" by Pilarín Bayés and Martí Gironell

1 December 2023
  • The Escola d'El Foment in Girona, in collaboration with Llibreria 22, hosted the event, which was attended by the authors and representatives of the IDIBGI.
  • The book, published by Estrella Polar, aims to bring science and research closer to children through an adventure in the human body. IDIBGI has been able to promote this initiative thanks to a Joan Oró 2023 grant from the Catalan Foundation for Research and Innovation (FCRI).

The tale "Les aventures de la Bio i la Medi" (Ediciones Estrella Polar) was presented yesterday in Girona with its authors, Pilarín Bayés and Martí Gironell, and representatives of the Dr. Josep Trueta Biomedical Research Institute of Girona (IDIBGI). The story tells the story of two very curious twins who discover what happens inside us when we harass ourselves.

IDIBGI would like to thank the authors, Pilarín Bayés and Martí Gironell, who immediately took up the challenge of dissemination when we suggested it to them at IDIBGI. With the advice of Dr. Olga Tura, a researcher in IDIBGI's Respiratory group, they have created and illustrated a fantastic story for children to learn about the respiratory and immune system. The result is a magnificent story published by Estrella Polar Edicions, which we hope will be a small seed to awaken children's curiosity about science and the human body!

An informative initiative that is now a reality thanks to the Joan Oró Grant from the Fundació Catalana per a la Recerca i la Innovació. Read more information about the story here.

You will find "The Adventures of Bio and Medi" in your bookshop of reference!
