"The programme is international, so it offers the possibility to open collaborations on a European level more easily. Also, IRB Barcelona has a very good research programme. The PIs who work at this institute are very known in the scientific community, in fact they attracted my attention. In general, IRB has a reputation in Spain but also in general at a European level."

"The research community at IRB Barcelona fosters such a collaborative environment, not only intra-institution but also inter-institution with the various individual institutes in the PCB, BIST, and Barcelona. This close collaboration not only makes it easier to reach out to experts across the field and do interdisciplinary science but also includes various learning experiences that could be helpful during my academic career."

«We suspected that CPEB1, a protein involved in regulating mRNA translation in the cytoplasm, might also be active in the nucleus and play a role in controlling pre-mRNA processing. We discovered that it affects the alternative generation in the mature mRNA of the 3'-UTR, regions where most of the elements regulating translation in time and space are located.»

«Our study highlights the complexity of p38 functions, both in cancer and in the maintenance of normal tissues. It shows why an inhibitor of this molecule could effectively have undesirable side effects. But these do not exclude it from being a target against cancer.»
