On Monday 22 October, the Dolors Aleu Hall registered a full house,  with more than 170 people gathering to celebrate the long and successful career of Joan J. Guinovart. Authorities, current and former members of the Board of Trustees, scientific collaborators, family members, representatives from philanthropic institutions, members of IRB Barcelona, and former students accompanied the founder and former director of the institute during 13 years on this special occasion. Indeed, due to interest in the event, it was retransmitted by video streaming in an annex hall. In total, more than 200 people rendered tribute to a life dedicated to biochemistry and science outreach.

Most solid tumours with metastatic potential show a high degree of chromosomal instability.

A study published in the journal Developmental Cell demonstrates that chromosomal instability itself promotes invasive behaviour.

The researchers identify the oncogene Fos and the tumour suppressor Capicua as necessary molecular elements mediating this invasive behaviour.
