15 May 2018 - LA RAZÓN

La Razón newspaper has published an article on the grants given by the European Research Council (ERC) to five researchers in Barcelona. Among these grants is the ERC Proof of Concept that Modesto Orozco, head of the Molecular Modelling and Bioinformatics Lab at IRB Barcelona, has received. This grant will allow him to optimise and validate "2shRNA", a tool that can simultaneously attack two therapeutic targets involved in drug resistance pathways and that can also bind to other molecules to enhance their delivery and efficacy.

7 May 2018 - RNE

RNE has interviewed Antonio Zorzano, head of the Complex Metabolic Diseases and Mitochondria lab at IRB Barcelona, about his research on DOR protein deficiency. Depletion of this protein stimulates the generation of new adipose cells and leads to a less toxic form of obesity. In the interview, Zorzano says that this study will allow the identification of therapeutic targets, which in turn will allow the development of new drugs. This will be a step forward as only three approved drugs are available through a medical prescription in Spain and they are not totally effective.
