On April 7, 2022, Mercè Durfort, the coordinator and promoter of the Galeria de Científics Catalans project, passed away.
We were able to say goodbye to her in a very emotional act on April 9, at 11 a.m., at the Les Corts Funeral Home in Barcelona, her city. The act, packed to the brim, was attended by relatives, friends, former students, colleagues, and members of the Reial Acadèmia de Ciències i Arts de Barcelona, the Institut d’Estudis Catalans, and the Societat Catalana de Biologia, among others, who remembered her professional side as a researcher and teacher of Biology, as well as her person.
We will continue this memory project of our Catalan scientists on this website with their determination and passion.
