Personal chronicle of the day by Tanya Yates
Although the event itself is not due to start till 10 am, at 7 am a small group of sleepy people from the Communications Department (including me) are already busy with the logistics of the event. Bit by bit, our eager “crazies” (different generations of our Crazy About Biomedicine programme for secondary school students) start to arrive, PhD students turn up to organise the multiple stands in the Science Fair, admin staff take up duties at the registration desk… it’s 10 am. I love punctuality!
People start to trickle down the street. It’s...
Through the campaign called #MetastasisChallenge, the centre aims to raise €5 M over the next four years.
Metastasis is responsible for 90% of deaths from cancer, and this campaign aims to rally social support for research in order to speed up discoveries.
From 12/02 to 12/03, the Artist in Residence, Ayse Güll Süter, will be exhibiting her work: “Art made of Science-Microspheres” at the Sant Pau Art Nouveau Site (Recinto Modernista de Sant Pau).
This project has been done in collaboration with the Fundación Quo Artis, the Sant Pau Art Nouveau Site, and IRB Barcelona.
From 7 to 11 February, the general public will have the opportunity to participate in activities related to ageing, nanoscience and climate change, among others.
IRB Barcelona will be taking part in the Biennal event through three initiatives that target the public.
Modesto Orozco’s lab has published a paper in Chemical Communications about a therapeutic tool to prevent treatment resistance in breast cancer.
The tool has been tested in tumour cells in vitro and will now need to be tested in animal models before moving on to the development of a valid treatment for patients.
The Montserrat School, IRB Barcelona, and the Fundació Catalunya La Pedrera take stock of their 3-year joint project that has brought about a change in the teaching method at this primary school.
The Institute will be giving a workshop entitled “Deciphering the code of cancer”
Coinciding with #GivingTuesday, today IRB Barcelona is launching its donation campaign for the forthcoming holiday season.
Basic research paves the way towards the medicine of the future. Donations made to research speed up discoveries
Since 2017, the Croatian researcher has been leading a team of 10 scientists in the Genome Data Science lab.
With Supek’s new appointment, IRB Barcelona now has 14 ICREA researchers.
A study in mice done at IRB Barcelona and CNAG-CRG explains that dermal fibroblasts lose their cell identify over time and with it their capacity to produce and secrete collagen and other proteins.
