Developmental biology offers the key to finding solutions for paediatric cancer, metastasis, and regeneration

From today and until Wednesday, 150 scientists from around the world will debate plasticity and cell migration in the new gathering in the Barcelona Biomed Conference Series, organised by IRB Barcelona and the BBVA Foundation.

The 28th conference in this series brings together biologists devoted to the study of development in animal models, specialists in cancer, and paediatricians.

Identification of a mechanism by which cells interact with their milieu

Researchers at IRB Barcelona and CSIC discover a mechanism through which the cells of an organism interact with their extracellular matrix
 

Scientists shed light on how cells with an incorrect number of chromosomes lead to tumour development

Aneuploid cells—that is to say those with an abnormal number of chromosomes—are found in most human tumours.

A study conducted at IRB Barcelona on the fly Drosophila reveals how surviving aneuploid cells favour tumour development.

A study using Drosophila flies reveals new regulatory mechanisms of cell migration

The study by Sofia J. Araújo sheds light on the fields of development, wound healing, angiogenesis, and tumour invasion, processes in which cell migration is crucial.

A study on cell migration provides insights into the movement of cancer cells

Using Drosophila melanogaster, researchers at IRB Barcelona discover that during multiple cell migrations a single cell can act as leader, dragging the others with it.

And in the beginning was histone 1

A team at IRB Barcelona identifies an essential protein for embryonic viability during the first cell divisions in the fly Drosophila.

This protein, called dBigH1, which is a variant of histone 1, could also be associated with fertility issues.
