A delegation from UNAN, Nicaragua, visits IRTA-CReSA

On April the 25th 2016, a delegation from the National Autonomous University of Nicaragua (UNAN) visited the IRTA-CReSA. The delegation included Ramona Pérez Rodríguez, Rector of UNAN-Managua, Emilio Lopez Jarquín, Dean of the Regional Multidisciplinary Faculty UNAN-Chontales and  Marvy Lucia Palacios Vargas, assistant to the Rector, accompanied by Lourdes Molina, retired professor of the Faculty of Education Sciences, and Jordi Bartolomé Filella, professor in the Department of Animal and Food Science UAB.

The delegation met with IRTA-CReSA Director, Joaquim Segalés, and visited the facilities where IRTA-CReSA conducts research in animal health, both the conventional laboratories and the biocontainment level 3 unit.

The reason for the visit was the interest of the UNAN to set up Veterinary studies in the region of Chontales and start PhD programs in order to stimulate animal heatlh research in the country. UNAN and UAB already have signed an agreement of co-operation to develop, with the support of the Autònoma Solidària Foundation, a doctoral program on environmental sciences coordinated by Jordi Bartolomé.
