1 June 2021

The Barcelona Hypatia European Science Prize in its second edition recognises Prof. Ilaria Capua, virologist and current Director of the “One Health” Center of Excellence at the University of Florida, for her notable research career in the fields of veterinary medicine and microbiology, for her contributions to science policy and leadership in the promotion of open access to genetic information on emerging viruses, and for the social impact that she has made through her contributions to the multidisciplinary concept of “one health”. Prof. Capua has taken this concept one step further by identifying how big data technology can be harnessed for the benefit of “circular health” to co-advance human and planetary health.
