Results about: metastasis
Adult stem cells ensure maintenance of the tissue and integrity in response to damage. They self-renew, are multipotential, and respond to and repair injuries.
The Signalling and Cell Cycle Laboratory focuses on studying the basic mechanisms of cell regulation, especially regarding how external signals are interpreted by cells to modulate cell proliferation, differentiation and survival. Our research centers on two main subjects:
Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the most frequent and the second-most deadly type of cancer with around 700,000 deaths worldwide.
Intricate signalling networks control cell division, differentiation, movement, organization and death. Understanding how cells read and transform these signals into changes in cell behaviour is a major research focus of our group.
The IRB Barcelona scientist and head of the Colorectal Cancer Lab has been awarded the Olof Palme Medal in recognition of his recent discovery regarding the treatment of advanced-stage colon tumors with immunotherapy.
Advanced Grants from the European Research Council (ERC) support researchers who have made important scientific achievements in the last 10 years.
The ICREA researcher at IRB Barcelona has been granted €2.5 M to continue his studies on the effects of diet on metastasis.
With this new award, the centre now holds 14 grants from the ERC.
