Bee venom to treat central nervous system diseases


The Generalitat’s (Catalan Government) Universities and Research website has echoed on the research performed by scientists at IRB Barcelona and the UB, namely a shuttle produced from a peptide present in bee venom and capable of transporting molecules into the brain.

The research results arose from the Benjamí Oller's PhD thesis, done in Professor Ernest Giralt's Lab at IRB Barcelona and defended in 2015. In January 2016, he started his postdoctoral training in Cambridge, UK.
