TV3 has reported on the researchers who received the 12 million euros raised in TV3’s 2012 Marató. Among the projects is that of Salvador Aznar Benitah—head of the Stem Cell and Cancer Laboratory at IRB Barcelona—which addresses metastasis and its relation to the consumption of dietary fat.
The Segre newspaper has published an article on the 11th "Vi per Vida" wine-tasting event, held last Sunday in Llelida. The 1000€ raised through this initiative will be donated to cancer and metastasis research at IRB Barcelona.
