The “Preguntas Big Van” section of the newspaper La Vanguardia interviewed Eduard Batlle, ICREA researcher and head of the Colorectal Cancer Lab at IRB Barcelona, about his collaboration with the Centro de Análisis Genómico regarding the study of colorectal tumour samples using the new unicellular analysis method. “This technique allows us to see what is happening inside the tumour at a level of detail that was unimaginable 5 years ago,” says Batlle. His objective is “to develop efficient therapies for patients with advanced colorectal cancer, which may also be useful for treating the metastasis of other types of tumour,” explains the researcher.
