ICGEB has launched a new video series, highlighting the work of its researchers to support the Sustainable Development Goals of the UN Agenda 2030.
This year we entered the Decade of Action. World leaders at the United Nations assembly asked us all to foster efforts toward Agenda 2030. The 17 Sustainable Development Goals of the Agenda strive toward an end to poverty, protection of the planet, and to improve the lives and prospects of all people, everywhere. At the ICGEB we are fully committed to this mission. These videos focus on how the research of our scientists translates to tangible results for sustainable development to reach these goals.
In this first video, Dr. Emanuele Buratti, Group Leader of Molecular Pathology lab, Trieste, Italy presents his team’s work on non-communicable diseases, such as neurodegenerative and metabolic diseases. The team fosters research towards better health for all: Sustainable Development Goal 3. Scientific research can play a pivotal role in understanding the molecular basis of severe neurological and metabolic diseases. “Only by sharing findings, can we strive for a healthier and fairer world”.
