At e4you, our open training platform, we are very aware of the situation caused by the pandemic. We strive to combat misinformation and get the maximum number of people vaccinated, so that we can put an end to Covid as soon as possible. For this reason, when the publishing house, Amarante, invited us to distribute their book “Vacunas 2022” free of charge, we were very excited.

Thanks to the publishing house of Salamanca, if you are enrolled in any of our courses you will be able to get the book in PDF or EPUB on the virtual campus. Its digital version costs 12.99 €. If you have not enrolled yet, remember that we have an exciting and broad educational offer of attractive courses, from cybersecurity courses to 3D printing.

“Vacunas 2022” is the title of a collective work elaborated by the students of Molecular Medicine and Vaccines, a subject taught in the third year of the Biotechnology degree. At the initiative of their Professor of Parasitology, Antonio Muro, the students conducted a series of interviews with teachers, researchers and professionals working in the field of pharmacy and vaccine development, all in one way or another related to the University of Salamanca.

A total of 35 experts share their experiences within the pages of “Vacunas 2022”. Among them, Adolfo García-Sastre, director of the Institute for Global Health and Emerging Pathogens at the Icahn School of Medicine Mount Sinai in New York; Ana Isabel Morales Martín, Dean of the Faculty of Pharmacy at the University of Salamanca; Isidro Sánchez García, Research Professor at the Institute of Molecular and Cellular Biology of Cancer in Salamanca; Luis Enjuanes Sánchez, Research Professor from the Higher Council for Scientific Research; and Manuel Alfonso Patarroyo, Head of the Department of Immunology and Molecular Biology at the Colombian Institute of Immunology Foundation.

María Engracia Pérez Palomero, president of the Official College of Pharmacists of Salamanca; and Raúl Ortiz de Lejarazu, professor of Microbiology at the University of Valladolid and director of the National Influenza Center of Valladolid, were also interviewed.

The book highlights the value of scientific contributions coming from the classrooms of the University of Salamanca regarding true scientific knowledge in the era of fake news.

We thank all the experts for collaborating in this book, and to you, e4you students, for continuing to search for answers.

Help us spread this book to as many people as possible!
