Enric Alvarez invited to High School in Montmeló to make informative talk about the heart

Enric Alvarez, professor of the research group BIOCOM-SC, gave a conference on the 28th of March within the promotion plan of the UPC to present the research and the work carried out at the UPC to secondary schools.
