Covid-19 changed its plans

The Rosario doctor this Wednesday received an e-mail notifying him that he had been appointed as a corresponding member of the National Academy of Medicine. Surprised, Bottasso confessed to this newspaper that he did not expect it. “It is a mime of life and an academic recognition”, he told La Capital in dialogue, which became a benchmark for medicine in the country.

“This year I was thinking of retiring,” said the doctor for whom the coronavirus radically changed his plans. “The Conicet and the University asked us to study the subject in depth to collaborate in the dissemination and clarify scientific questions,” explained Bottasso, who spends between four and six hours a day investigating the causes and possible cure of Covid-19.

Bottasso currently maintains a simple dedication to Conicet as an emeritus member after many years as the Laboratory’s director. “I thought to continue going to the hospital three mornings and close that stage, but now I am almost all day working on hospital issues,” he said.

He still does not know how they got his data, although they are all available in the Conicet system, but the truth is that his profile was clearly studied and put to a vote in the highest medical entity in the country.

“First I am a person”

Oscar Bottasso defines himself as a “person” and then leads to professional titles. His great passion is research. “I always had the illusion of knowing something else, of learning and that was really the passion of my life, and it continues to be. I believe that one has to find a passion in life and that makes life livable and exciting,” he reflected.

Within the framework of this national distinction, the doctor especially wanted to highlight his wife, Amalia, who “has been my great life companion” for almost four decades, and his two children, who are his true pride.

“I am grateful for all the opportunities that life gave me and the study that allowed me to grow as a scientist and as a person,” he declared and pointed out that he never cared too much about titles, although this recognition, at this stage of life, means a true “mime of life”.
