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.

Scientists in Barcelona discover a potential treatment for cirrhosis

A study by IRB Barcelona and IDIBAPS reveals a therapeutic target to prevent the development of the many abnormal blood vessels that cause gastrointestinal bleeding—the main complication in cirrhosis.

Cirrhosis is the main risk factor for liver cancer. The same target may be the key to preventing and treating this condition.

Cirrhosis figures among the top twenty causes of death from disease worldwide.
