BIST Director General says modernising research facilities and providing training to boost the social impact of science are the top priorities of the Barcelona Institute of Science and Technology
Barry C. Barish presents theory and technology behind measuring gravitational waves developed at LIGO, for which he won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics
Barry Barish, 2017 Nobel laureate in Physics, will speak about the ‘new science’ arising from the proof found in 1915 for the gravitational waves Einstein predicted.
The scientific re-evolution based on the new power paradigm, the latest advances in biosensors and in vitro production of specialised cells and human organs are the topics of the three debate panels.
The new school lab has come about from the Escuelas Tándem (Tandem Schools) project, which is supported by IRB Barcelona and the Catalunya La Pedrera Foundation.
The Montserrat School and IRB Barcelona have just brought the Tandem Schools Project to a close. This educational initiative has applied science as a core theme to enhance the innovative activities, academic results, prestige, and social cohesion of the school.
Run and financed by the Catalunya La Pedrera Foundation, the project is one of the first tandems between a primary school and a scientific institute.
A conference organised by IRB Barcelona and the BBVA Foundation brings together leading international researchers devoted to two cell organelles that play key roles in health and disease.
Cancer and certain developmental disorders are characterised by impaired activity of these complex cell structures and defects in cell cycle control.
The Asociación Española Contra el Cáncer (AECC) presents a prize for a study that reveals the capacity of the CPEB4 protein to prevent fatty liver disease.
The research was led by Raúl Méndez from IRB Barcelona and Mercedes Fernández from IDIBAPS.
This weekend the Ciutadella Park will be hosting this event, which will showcase 230 scientific activities aimed at the general public.
IRB Barcelona will be participating through two workshops and a micro-talk, related to microscopy, cancer research and ageing.
Jordi Casanova from IRB Barcelona wrote an opinion article in EMBO Journal.
The author highlights that scientists should be aware of the limitations of models and categories.
The video series Meet Our Scientists presents Travis Stracker, head of the Genomic Instability and Cancer lab at IRB Barcelona.
The video “Maintaining stability of the genome” highlights the research underway to unravel how cells prevent genomic instability.
Nine scientists at IRB Barcelona form part of EMBO, an organisation that comprises more than 1,800 outstanding researchers from Europe and around the world specialised in molecular biology.
“This will allow me to strengthen interactions with other European researchers, as well as to stay abreast of new ideas, concepts and technologies,” says Aznar Benitah.
BIST has selected 12 winners, among them Guiomar Solanas, Jelena Urosevic and Lidia Mateo.
This programme recognises excellence in research and supports women scientists in their transition to leadership positions.
