In a ceremony in the 18th century building that houses the Academy of Medicine of Catalonia, Dr. Pere Domingo was named a member of the Academy. Dr. Domingo is a long-time collaborator with whom we have been developing translational research on adipose tissue and metabolic alterations in people living with HIV for the last twenty years. Nearly twenty projects financed by public (Carlos III Health Institute, FIPSE, Fundació Marato TV3) and private companies and 70 joint publications account for this fruitful scientific collaboration, currently ongoing. Congratulations, Pere!
