The “Meet Our Scientists” video “Networks of life” explains his work and reveals the personal side of this scientist.

Patrick Aloy (Barcelona, 1972), ICREA research professor and ERC Consolidator Grant holder, leads the Structural Bioinformatics and Network Biology Laboratory at IRB Barcelona. In the  video, he talks about the network biology of Alzheimer's disease and breast cancer. 

Applying computational models to study whole systems, his research aims to find therapeutic solutions for Alzheimer's disease and breast cancer.

Meet Our Scientists” comprises a series of 3-minute videos in an interview format produced in English and with subtitles available in Catalan and Spanish. In these interviews, IRB Barcelona scientists give a brief description of the research that they do and explain what motivates them and the impact their work may have. The videos seek to show the insight, passion, character and talent of the scientists that work at the centre. 

Watch the video “Networks of life” (Subtitles available in Spanish, Catalan and English).

 

 

A new video will be available on YouTube and via the IRB Barcelona’s website next month.
