New testimonial video: Fighting endemic diseases
Dr. Pilar Mateo is a chemist who works in the field of preventing endemic diseases, which affect half of the world's population. To fight their spread, she has developed and patented a technology to ‘vaccinate' dwellings, which in some countries are home to harmful insects and plagues.
This innovative technology based on polymeric microcapsules works by painting the interior walls of homes with a paint that is enriched with insecticide. Pilar has not only protected her technology with a patent, she also owns 68 national trade marks and three Community trade marks.
‘Intellectual property has been crucial for the development of my technology. It offers me a space in which to work.'
