Candidates with a strong interest in the microtubule cytoskeleton who would like to join our group should e-mail a cover letter with CV including contact information for references to jens.ludersirbbarcelona.org.

Connections between the cell cycle, centrosomes and cilia are gaining attention in biomedicine

A conference organised by IRB Barcelona and the BBVA Foundation brings together leading international researchers devoted to two cell organelles that play key roles in health and disease.

Cancer and certain developmental disorders are characterised by impaired activity of these complex cell structures and defects in cell cycle control.

Towards a better understanding of the puzzling “droplets” in the cell cytoplasm

A study at IRB Barcelona sheds light on the dynamics of protein aggregates that behave like “droplets of oil in water” and that are described as membraneless cytoplasmic organelles.

These organelles regulate protein activity during cell division.

This is the first study at the Institute to address the so-called liquid-like droplets, which are attracting the attention of researchers worldwide.

Identification of a new protein essential for ovule and sperm formation

Scientists at IRB Barcelona discover a crucial protein for meiosis—the cell division process that gives rise to sex cells.

Without the RingoA protein, both male and female mice are sterile.

Published in Nature Communications, the results could pave the way for the development of male contraceptives.

Cell division: A last-minute decision

A comment by Cayetano González in Nature News & Views

First structures achieved with the Alba synchrotron

Joan Roig’s team collect three-dimensional information of protein complexes involved in cell division.

Key protein in stem cell division identified

The study, published in Nature Cell Biology, focuses on the cell organelle known as centrosome, which organises the network of microtubules that serves as the cell’s skeleton.
