In coincidence with its 50th anniversary, Fundación Domingo Martínez has signed a cooperation agreement for a new CNIO Friends postdoctoral contract. This new agreement strengthens CNIO’s ties to philanthropic foundations aware of the relevance of cancer research and committed to common good by supporting research talent.
The signing ceremony was attended by Maria Blasco, CNIO Director; Rafael Rodrigo, Secretary-General for Research and Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the CNIO; César López-Palop, Chairman of the Board of Trustees at Fundación Domingo Martínez; and Raquel Yotti, Director of ISCIII.
“Thanks to Fundación Domingo Martínez’s generous contribution, we will be able to engage more scientific talent at the CNIO through the CNIO Friends postdoctoral fellowship programme,” Maria Blasco said.
César López-Palop has highlighted the importance for a small and independent foundation such as the Domingo Martínez Foundation, to collaborate with prestigious institutions such as the CNIO to achieve its founding goals.
