Diario Médico has echoed that Fran Supek, head of the IRB Barcelona Genome Data Science group, has been awarded a Starting Grant from the European Research Council (ERC). This funding will be used to further his project. Supek aims to acquire greater knowledge of cancer biology in order to support the design of individualised therapies. To this end, he will analyse hypermutated tumours.
