The donation will be destined to boost research into cancer and metastasis.
The PhD4MD Programme allows medical doctors to do a three-year research project devoted to cancer or to respiratory or neurodegenerative diseases.
There are currently eight medical doctors conducting research in centres of excellence in Barcelona, and this year this number may increase by up to four more.
GenStorm (“An integrated approach to visualize and model the spatial conformation of genes at the nanoscale level”), led by Pablo Daniel Dans (IRB Barcelona) and Marie Victoire Neguembor (CRG) is one of this projects.
The programme seeks to stir young people’s interest in science by allowing them to get involved in real projects.
"Crazy About Biomedicine" is part of an initiative run by the Fundación Catalunya - La Pedrera.
The Ferrer Research Foundation acknowledges the various perspectives of his research into cancer and aging.
The European Molecular Biology Lab (EMBL) in Barcelona and IRB Barcelona bring together leading scientists in the conference “Morphogenetic Engineering”, an event supported by the BBVA Foundation.
The merge of various disciplines of developmental biology is key to enhancing our knowledge of tissue development and repair, processes that find their most direct applications in regenerative medicine.
“One day we will be able to re-build damaged organs and keep the whole body fit and healthy. But right now we must strengthen our knowledge of how tissues are built and how they are maintained,” say James Sharpe, Head of EMBL Barcelona, and Marco Milán, coordinator of the Cell and Developmental Biology programme.
Specialists advance toward the “Google Earth” of the genome, which will allow them to see the detailed structure of DNA folded within the nucleus, from atomic resolution to the level of the entire molecule
3D genomics promises to reveal the hidden layer of gene regulation and allow researchers to uncover the causes of many diseases
20 world leaders in 3D genomics will meet today until Wednesday in Barcelona at the Barcelona BioMed Conference organized by IRB Barcelona and the BBVA Foundation.
IRB Barcelona proposes activities targeted to a wide public audience during Science Week 2017.
The programme includes a visit by more than 100 school children to the centre, microtalks in pubs and debates on hot topics with well-known figures such as Andreu Mas-Colell and Isona Passola.
The activities offered by Science Week are included in the programme of the 1st ENABLE Symposium, aimed at young biomedical scientists, which will be held in Barcelona from 15 to 17 November.
From 15 to 17 November, the first international ENABLE symposium—which is fully booked—will bring together 300 PhD students and postdocs from all around Europe.
ENABLE is the first scientific symposium organised by and for young scientists and it includes scientific talks, a Career day and outreach activities.
The European Union will finance four ENABLE symposia in various European cities up to 2020.
