Researchers dig up new molecular details on "the other type" of stem cells

Scientists at IRB Barcelona and CSIC reveal that the combination of two molecular signals determines which cells that have already differentiated can regain their stem cell properties.

Their studies on fruit flies allow for advancements in the field of regenerative medicine and a better understanding of processes involved in cancer.

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.
