20 Minutos, La Rioja and Europa Press have published an article on the funding received by IRB Barcelona scientist Marta Kovatcheva for her studies on how to prevent lung cancer relapse after treatment. Thanks to the IV Women's Race organised by the Spanish Association Against Cancer (AECC) in La Rioja, her research will receive 160,000 euros.

Cope, ABC, La Rioja, among other media, have published an article about the inscriptions to the IV Women's Race for Research from Asociación Española Contra el Cáncer (AECC). The resources obtained from this race will be used to finance two predoctoral grants at two institutions in La Rioja. Also, the project "Research on the impact of senescence influenced by inflammation as a therapy on cancer stem cells" led by Marta Kovatcheva, researcher at IRB Barcelona, will be financed.

La Razón and Info Diabético have each published an article about the work done by Manuel Serrano at IRB Barcelona: "If we eliminate damaged cells, the function of aged tissues is greatly improved, that is, they are rejuvenated," says Serrano, who goes on to point out that "it has been possible to delay and reverse the aging of small mammals, such as mice, with the use of experimental drugs that eliminate damaged cells."

A team headed by Manuel Serrano at IRB Barcelona has designed a drug encapsulation system that selectively targets senescent cells.

The study paves the way for therapeutic approaches to eliminate senescent cells in many diseases, such as pulmonary fibrosis and cancer.
