The programme "La Noche de Cope" interviewed Joan J. Guinovart about the bequest of 1.5 million euros donated to IRB Barcelona and that will be devoted to strengthening research into cancer and metastasis.
The radio station Cope, and the newspapers Ara Balear, Diario de Mallorca and Ultima Hora, among other media, have echoed news about the personal challenge taken on by Magdalena Socias, a cancer patient in Majorca, who intends to cross La Serra de Tramuntana on foot in order to increase awareness of the fight against the metastasis. This hike is part of the #MetastasisChallenge campaign, through which the Institute for Research in Biomedicine (IRB Barcelona) aims to raise €5 M over the next four years to boost research in this field.
Nació Digital, the Vinos y Restaurantes magazine and Vinetur, have published an article about the collaboration of AT Roca, a winery in Sant Sadurní d'Anoia, through the fundraising wine "Cop de Cor", which the foundation has been producing since 2015. This project aims to support research into cancer and metastasis conducted at IRB Barcelona and increase public awareness of the value of cancer research.
