Carolina Torrealba, Director of Communications and Special Projects, leaves Fundación Ciencia & Vida to take the position of Director of the Millennium Science Initiative


Carolina Torrealba has recently resigned her position as Director of Communications and Special Projects at Fundación Ciencia & Vida to be appointed Director of the Millennium Science Initiative at the Ministry of Economy.

Until April 2018, Carolina Torrealba was part of the Executive Committee of Fundación Ciencia & Vida, leading projects of international scientific networking and developing educational and scientific culture programs. She founded and directed the institute’s publishing house, Editorial Ciencia & Vida, and led a line of research on the history of Chilean science, which gave rise to the book “Pioneros: El inicio de la Biología experimental en Chile”.

Undoubtedly, this new position in the Ministry of Economy is a great recognition of Carolina’s trajectory and commitment for the advancement of science in our country. We thank her for these years of dedication, interest and effort contributing to the success of our institute. We are certain that she will work with the same zeal in her new role and will be a great contribution to the future of Chilean science.

We will miss you, Carolina! We wish you all the best in your new challenge!
