Queen Letizia is the Permanent Honorary President of the Spanish Association against Cancer (AECC) and the Scientific Foundation of the AECC. The “V de Vida” award is the annual recognition granted by the AECC to a person, institution, company or association belonging to any social sphere (political, business, sports, artistic, public, health, etc.) that has stood out for improving the lives of cancer patients and their families. It is the commitment of civil society in the fight against cancer that is rewarded every year.

In 2005, Francisco J. Martínez Mojica published the discovery that sparked the CRISPR revolution. In June 2012, Emmanuelle Charpentier and Jennifer Doudna found how to use it to cut and paste DNA. Today thousands of laboratories around the world use CRISPR / Cas9 and have even begun to test their application in humans in treatments against several types of cancer. This technique, also known as the genetic “cut and paste”, could generate substantial changes throughout society in the not too distant future as it is already causing profound changes already visible in biology in general.

The AECC, which was established in 1953, is the first Organization whose honorary presidency Dona Letizia assumed on a permanent basis as a royal, and she actively participates in and promotes the important work of the organization that has been going on for more than 60 years in the fight against cancer. AECC has led the effort of Spanish society to reduce the impact caused by this disease and improve the lives of people. The organisation integrates patients, family members, volunteers and professionals who work together to prevent, sensitize, support and accompany the affected people and finance research projects that will allow better diagnosis and treatment of cancer.

Finally King Felipe put the new technology “Vega-3” into operation by pressing the start button. The Vega-3 is the first ever Spanish Laser technology that reaches the limit of petawatt.

The VEGA system is possible to reach intensities in the range of 1019 Wcm-2, which is much higher than the atomic intensity unit (3.5 1016 Wcm-2). Therefore, experiments are being designed in different fields related to proton acceleration. The advantages of all this power that reach the arms of VEGA not only involve the possibility of obtaining very small foci, but also the possibility of having large areas of interaction.

Then the couple received the explanation of the project in detail from the development team about its working and impact.
