Several media have reported on the platform set up by IRB Barcelona, the Center for Genomic Regulation (CRG) and the Institute for Bioengineering of Catalonia (IBEC) for mass testing for COVID-19, which seeks to contribute to halting the spread of the virus.
«98% of the potential therapeutic molecules against diseases of the central nervous system cannot cross the blood-brain barrier. We develop peptides with the capacity to open the doors of the barrier and act as shuttles when attached to a therapeutic molecule.»

«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.»
