The aim of BIST is to become a multidisciplinary institution which serves as an international benchmark for research
Nostrum BioDiscovery has come about from the combined efforts of IRB Barcelona and the BSC-CNS—two research centres of excellence in Barcelona—with the participation of the University of Barcelona and ICREA and supported by the Botín Foundation’s technology transfer programme.
The company boasts cutting-edge bioinformatics technologies to speed up the development and lower the cost of designing drugs—which are becoming increasingly more complex and expensive—and to further precision medicine.
The outgoing president, Rolf Tarrach, will remain on the board of trustees

Ribas highlights the impact of the evolution of the enzyme ADAT, described in the journal Cell in 2012. The appearance of ADAT was decisive for the separation of species into the three domains of life, and it could be of biomedical and biotech relevance.
Yesterday, the coordinator of IRB Barcelona’s Oncology Programme participated in the conference series Ciencia After Work a la Pedrera in a session entitled Càncer de colon, què hi ha de nou?

During the event, IRB Barcelona received the second donation for research into cancer and metastasis from the “Vi per Vida” charity.
The third video of IRB Barcelona’s series “Meet Our Scientists” is devoted to ICREA researcher Maria Macias, who describes her field as “exciting and understandable”.
Her research focuses on determining protein structures that have the potential to improve drug development
