Teamwork. From meeting with coworkers in the office to practicing winning plays with fellow weekend warriors, strong teamwork allows us to learn from each other as we work toward a common goal.
So, what’s possible when an internationally renowned football (soccer) club and leading health scientists team up?
Abbott and Real Madrid have come together to open the new Abbott-Real Madrid Innovation Lab, located inside Real Madrid’s first men’s team training grounds in Madrid, Spain. The space allows Abbott scientists and the club’s medical staff to collaborate on research projects, generate innovative thinking, and explore the future of sport physiology, including how nutrition impacts performance and recovery. The work done at the Lab will benefit Real Madrid, Abbott and global athletes of all skill levels, and our discoveries can help unlock what is next at the intersection of health, sports and innovation.
“Hydration. Injury. Performance. Recovery. There is so much to explore when it comes to the combination of health, nutrition and athletics, and the research that will occur at the Abbott-Real Madrid Innovation Lab has the potential to influence how coaches, medical teams and athletes approach what they do each day,” said Hakim Bouzamondo, M.D., divisional vice president of global research and development for Abbott's nutrition business. “Now is the time to push the limits of sports science to help people reach their full potential.”
