100 secondary school students aged between 16 and 18 years old will have the chance to experience the Barcelona International Youth Science Challenge (BIYSC) 2017.
It is a two-week (10-21 July) scientific summer camp organised by the Catalunya-La Pedrera Foundation in collaboration with first-class research centres all over Catalonia.
The registration period is now open for BIYSC, in which IRB Barcelona coordinates a project in biomedicine.
The 11th international partnering conference comes to Barcelona from 20 to 22 March.
19 young researchers at IRB Barcelona will also be attending the three-day conference.
BIO-Europe Spring is the premier springtime partnering conference for the biotechnology industry.
IRB Barcelona is to participate in the twelfth edition of the Catalunya La Pedrera Foundation's Teachers and Science Programme.
Teachers will work alongside the scientists to develop resources that can be taken back to the classroom.
IRB Barcelona has received 18 M € funding for 11 projects in the fields of Life Sciences and of Physics and Engineering.
IRB Barcelona starts a project with the long-term goal to achieve an injectable frataxin treatment able to reach the brain.
Frataxin is the protein that is reduced in those affected by this rare and degenerative disease, which has no cure.
The patients’ associations Babel Family and ASOGAF in Granada provide the funding for the initial 18 months of this challenge.
Marc Liesa received his PhD in 2008 after completing his doctoral studies in Antonio Zorzano's Complex Metabolic Diseases and Mitochondria Laboratory.
This award recognises the excellence of former IRB Barcelona scientists.
The jury for the prize acknowledges Marc Liesa’s important contributions to mitochondrial biology.
IRB Barcelona is to participate in the first edition of YoMo Barcelona by giving a Lego fluorescence microscope workshop on March 1.
It is a unique and creative project that brings the latest 3D imaging technology to schools, high schools and universities.
Julien Colombelli, co-inventor of the microscope and Core Facility Manager of the Advanced Digital Microscopy Laboratory, will be coordinating the workshop.
The positive public response to the "Futur" fund-raising campaign launched by IRB Barcelona towards the end of 2016 sets the stage for a new "IRB Barcelona Futur PhD Fellowship".
The fellowship will allow a young researcher to join an IRB Barcelona lab to do a 4-year doctoral thesis.
Research centres of excellence in Barcelona offer PhD fellowships to medical doctors.
Called PhD4MD, the programme allows medical doctors to carry out a three-year doctoral thesis on cancer, rare disease or neurodegenerative conditions.
He studies the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying the regulation of tissue growth during normal development, its proper functioning and the formation of a tumour.
