The study, published in PNAS, opens the way for large-scale screenings to identify new targets for cancer therapy.
Scientists at IRB Barcelona present a model to demonstrate the correlation between genomic instability and cancer.
Work by IRB Barcelona researchers will further the study of neurodegenerative diseases such as Lafora progressive myoclonic epilepsy
Marco Milán, coordinator of the Cell and Developmental Biology Programme at IRB Barcelona talks on “Radio Síntesis” about the importance of the fly Drosophila melanogaster for the study and treatment of human diseases such as cancer for example.

The paper ‘Notch-mediated repression of bentam miRNA contributes to boundary formation in the Drosophila wing’, recently published in Development by ICREA researcher Marco Milán and his group, has been selected as an Editor's Choice by Science Signaling magazine.
Two quests, one looking into adhesion molecules to gain insight into compartmentalization in the Drosophila wing and the other aiming to discover how the cytoskeleton contributes to the development of compartment boundaries are now linked by a single microRNA, bentam.
Researchers discover a new mechanism for regulation of gene expression in growing tissues.
The newspaper Diario Médico devoted an article to the latest work performed by the Development and Growth Control Laboratory, headed by Marco Milan. The results were published in the journal PLoS Biology. The study unravels the role of protein p53, known for its antitumoural properties, in regulating the coordinated growth of the organs.
