Fundación’s outstanding participation during 14th National Science and Technnology Week

November 12, 2008

In the framework of the activities carried out during the National Science and Technology Week organized by Conicyt’s Explora Program, Fundación welcomed fifty high school students last week, who visited the Technology Park labs to observe experiments and attended a lecture delivered by the researchers Esteban Engel, Erwin Krauskopf and Vivian Wilhelm, who introduced them to the biotechnology world.

In addition, two Fundación´s junior researchers visited different schools in Santiago to deliver lectures.  Nicolás Cifuentes visited the Terranova School in La Reina and lectured on “Viruses, friends or foes?” and Nicole Tischler lectured at the Palmares School in Quilicura on “Cells and their 1,000 wonders”.
