10 Mar 2017
The newspaper "AraBalears" interviews Eduard Batlle, coordinator of IRB Barcelona’s Oncology Programme and ICREA researcher, on the effectiveness of immunotherapies to treat metastatic disease in advanced colorectal cancer.
To mark World Cancer Day, the programme El Matí de Barcelona Betevé broadcasted by Radio Barcelona has interviewed Roger Gomis, ICREA Researcher and head of the Growth Control and Metastasis Lab at IRB Barcelona. During the interview, he talked about metastasis, the process by which a tumour spreads to the rest of the body, allowing cancer cells to adapt to new environments “What we are focusing on in our lab is precisely how this cell adaptation and plasticity comes about,” says Gomis.
