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.
Catalunya Ràdio, El Punt Avui, Expansión Catalunya, Europa Press, EFE, among other media, have published an article about the launch of the #MetastasisChallenge campaign. Through this initiative, the Institute for Research in Biomedicine (IRB Barcelona) calls society to action to support research into metastasis—the main cause of death from cancer—by raising €5 M over the next four years.
Betevé Notícies Vespre has interviewed Eduard Batlle, coordinator to the Cancer Programme at the Institute for Research in Biomedicine (IRB Barcelona), about the recent campaign launched by the centre to raise funds for research into metastasis. “We have been studying metastasis at the centre for 10-12 years and have made some important findings. We now feel that it is a timely to push advances in this research, and with greater resources we will be able to speed up the process,” said Eduard Batlle.
