ICREA researcher Roger Gomis, head of the Growth Control and Cancer Metastasis Lab, has recently been awarded a 2016 "Knowledge Industry Grant" (Producte), by the Catalan Government’s Agency for Management of University and Research Grants, for the further development of a therapy for the treatment of breast cancer. His 18-month project, "Lipid targeting in breast cancer", aims to obtain a monoclonal antibody, based on a well-defined molecular target, that is suitable for patient treatment and to complete its pre-clinical development phase.
The labs headed by Angel R. Nebreda, Ernest Giralt and Roger Gomis secure funding for further development of three medical applications.
The three projects will receive 220,000 euros from the "Knowledge Industry" programme, which is run by the Catalan Government and cofunded by ERDFs.
