The global response to Covid-19 Pandemic has led to an unprecedented level of resources mobilized for research and the development of vaccines in record time. However, this success has limitations, as no therapies have proven effective against the new virus and vaccination campaigns are facing global inequalities.


Today more than ever, it is time to adopt a holistic approach to tackle this pandemic, covering biological, clinical, environmental and social issues.


”la Caixa” Foundation, in collaboration with Biocat, is promoting the CaixaResearch Conference «Pandemics: overcoming Covid19 and preparing for the future» with the aim of improving preparedness and evidence-based decision-making.
