El Punt Avui, La Razón, El Periódico, El Economista, among other media, have published an article about the research that was financed with the 12 million euros collected in TV3’s 2012 Marató (telethon) dedicated to cancer. La Marató has highlighted, among others, two IRB Barcelona projects that were awarded funding. On the one hand, Núria López-Bigas developed the "Cancer Genome Interpreter", a platform that allows better selection of treatments for cancer and the prediction of patient response. And on the other, Salvador Aznar Benitah led a project addressing metastasis and its relation to the consumption of dietary fat.

Diario Médico has published an article on the "Cancer Geneme Interpreter" (CGI) that includes statements by Nuria López-Bigas, head of the Biomedical Genomics Lab at IRB Barcelona. The CGI is an open platform on the Internet that automates the interpretation of genomic alterations in specific tumours, reporting their relationship with tumour onset. This platform has been developed by researchers from IRB Barcelona and the Vall d'Hebrón Institute of Oncology.

The newspaper Regió7 has interviewed Nuria López-Bigas, head of the Biomedical Genomics Lab at IRB Barcelona, about her work in computational biology. In this interview, she talks about how she reads millions of DNA data from cancer tumours to establish guidelines to explain the behaviour of diseased cells and identify strategies through which to cure them.

The blog Handy Recovery has published an article about the "Cancer Genome Interpreter" (CGI), an open platform designed to support the identification of tumour alterations that drive the disease and detect those that may be therapeutically actionable. Núria López-Bigas, leader of the Biomedical Genomics Laboratory at IRB Barcelona, is part of this initiative.

The scientific journal Nature Genetics has dedicated a "News and Views" article to the latest study by the ICREA researcher Núria López-Bigas, published in November. The article analyses the results according to which the mechanisms of DNA repair are more efficient in the region of the genes that contains the information necessary to produce proteins.

La Vanguardia, Europa Press and Biotech-Spain, as well as El Mundo's Innovadores supplement, have dedicated some lines to the ENABLE symposium. In addition, The International Union of Biochemistry & Molecular Biology (IUBMB) has highlighted this event on the cover of its November newsletter. The symposium, which was held from November 15 to 17, was complemented by various activities aimed at the general public. The ENABLE symposia series aims to train the next generation of leaders in biomedicine, establish a sustainable network of young researchers and achieve dialogue on science with society.

“It is a great honour and it strengthens my commitment to continuing my research with the highest standards,” says the IRB Barcelona group leader.

Eight IRB Barcelona group leaders are currently members of the European Molecular Biology Organization.
