BIST Dolors Aleu Graduate Centre

The BIST Dolors Aleu Graduate Centre (BIST DAGC) is a post-graduate teaching centre affiliated to Pompeu Fabra University (UPF). It serves as the host for the Master of Multidisciplinary Research in Experimental Sciences (MMRES) among other research training programmes.

The purpose of the BIST DAGC is to train researchers willing to explore the opportunities that lie along the boundaries of various scientific areas, especially those studied at the seven BIST centres.

The BIST DAGC is named after Dr. Dolors Aleu i Riera (Barcelona 1857-1913), the first woman to receive a medical degree in Spain — in 1882. Through her figure, BIST wants to publicly recognise the efforts of all the female scientists who had to fight to make their way and to contribute their talents to research.
