El Punt Avui, La Razón, El Periódico, El Economista, among other media, have published an article about the research that was financed with the 12 million euros collected in TV3’s 2012 Marató (telethon) dedicated to cancer. La Marató has highlighted, among others, two IRB Barcelona projects that were awarded funding. On the one hand, Núria López-Bigas developed the "Cancer Genome Interpreter", a platform that allows better selection of treatments for cancer and the prediction of patient response. And on the other, Salvador Aznar Benitah led a project addressing metastasis and its relation to the consumption of dietary fat.
