Bial is an internationally renowned Portuguese company and its mission is to, among others things, discover and develop therapeutic solutions within the area of health. Bial has been taking on an important role in researching and developing new drugs.
I had the pleasure to be at the ceremony of the BIAL Merit Award in Medical Sciences, last Friday (6th May 2011). This award is one of the most important in the field of health in Europe.
Professor Vladimir Hachinski, a distinguished researcher in the areas of dementia and stroke, was awarded with the sum of 200,000 Euros.
For this and for so much more, I feel that I have to highlight Bial’s work. And because I believe that people are the most important, I have to congratulate Dr. Luis Portela for his presidency in BIAL, along these years.
