Operation ‘1000 researchers at schools’ is ongoing

The operation ‘1000 researchers in schools in France and abroad’ intended to bring together researchers and middle school students to share a moment and discover the reality of research. Many establishments signed up for an intervention. About fifty researchers from the Institute of Myology took part in this operation in 65 establishments (middle and high schools) throughout France. More than 170 interventions took place in total for more than 6,000 affected students.

Nadine Dragin (‘Myasthenia Gravis: aetiology, pathophysiology and therapeutic approach’ team from the Myology Center for Research) is among the first scientific experts to be going out to meet high school students for the 2020 edition of Operation 1000 researchers at schools based in France and abroad. Despite the current health situation and the constraints that it imposes, she did not hesitate to go out and meet a few dozen high school students. In this interview, given during her very first visit, she describes her daily life as a researcher and her commitment to this ‘Operation’.
