Coverage in the media of the 25th Barcelona BioMed Conference on membrane proteins—mole
All our cells have membranes that separate the cell content from the external environment. Thirty percent of human proteins exert their action in these and other cell membranes.
What they say about us
Joan J. Guinovart
«We are at an unprecedented position in history to bring about change in the way we deal with human health and disease.»
John H. J. Petrini
Memorial Sloan-Ketterin Center
«The Barcelona BioMed Conferences series provide an inspiring forum to discuss great science from a range of fields – in a spectacular setting. The conferences break down traditional boundaries of scientific fields and bring different players together for a new perspective. A great opportunity, especially for younger researchers. Definitely keep an eye on this series.»

«IRB Barcelona is a place where research is done at an internationally competitive level, and strong collaborations are forged through shared ideas and efforts. It’s full of innovative and ambitious minds supported by the latest technologies in biomedical research. Add the friendly atmosphere, opportunities for social and scientific exchange, and the irresistible culture, food and weather of Catalonia, and you’ve got the perfect mix.»
«As we improve our understanding of the molecular bases of disease, the possibilities of intervening with molecular tools are multiplying. We need a XXI-century chemistry that is subtle and complex, and that will be able to design any type of molecule. One that is not limited to what we currently have to see if it works, but that will be able to tailor specific molecules from natural products. In other words, a chemistry that is capable of pushing the limits of complexity of synthesis.»
