Treatment for late -stage prostate cancer patients: getting closer to a solution

Professor Salvatella is an ERC grantee, whose research is focused in looking for new prostatic cancer therapies that would bypass the resistance that some pacients develop over time. In particular, he studies the folding of the protein androgen receptor as a model for studying the disease.

Xavier Salvatella also starred in a video of IRB Barcelona's series Meet Our Scientists, which has the aim to promote IRB Barcelona scientists, attract talent, and disseminate biomedicine.
