During cell growth, cells copy their DNA through a process called DNA replication. For this process to be accurate, the genetic and epigenetic information must be copied flawlessly.

"Thanks to immunotherapy, and other therapies, the treatment of cancer is becoming more successful"

La República

Immunotherapy is gaining ground in the fight against cancer. The tumour has a strategy to evade detection by the immune system, thus allowing it to spread throughout the body. Science has discovered this therapy and is working on overcoming this evasion strategy. In this regard, La República has published an interview with Eduard Batlle, head of the Colorectal Cancer Lab at IRB Barcelona.

Quick facts

IRB Barcelona has been awarded the "HR Excellence in Research" logo. This recognition reflects the commitment of the Institute to continuously improving its human resources policies in line with the European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers. The award confirms the efforts of the Institute to ensure fair and transparent recruitment and appraisal procedures. Click here for more information.

IRB Barcelona is home to nearly 450 research, technical and support staff from 35 countries who share the common goal of contributing to the advancement of the biomedical sciences through investigator–driven research, and improving quality of life by applying advances in this field.

The convergence of biology, chemistry, and structural and computational biology is unique at IRB Barcelona and opens a strategic window to gain insight into basic molecular processes in health and disease.

Research is conducted by 23 groups organized into 5 interdisciplinary programmes. Each programme includes a diverse faculty of researchers with overlapping scientific interests. The research areas have been structured to be highly interactive, fostering multidisciplinarity by combining modern molecular biology, classical genetics, biochemistry, structural biology, bioinformatics, systems biology, advanced microscopy, and genomic and proteomic approaches.

Our Board of Trustees comprises members of the Catalan Government (from the Department of Economy and Competitivity and the Department of Health), the University of Barcelona, a representative from the BBVA Foundation as well as internationally renowned scientists.
