The IRB Barcelona group leader and ICREA Professor has been recognized in the category of preclinical research for his contributions to the understanding of colon cancer.
Since 2002, these awards have recognized excellence in biomedical research in Spain.
Centres of excellence in biomedical research in Barcelona offer five fellowships as part of the new edition of the predoctoral programme in biomedicine for physicians, PhD4MD.
The initiative allows physicians to embark on a three-year research project on topics such as cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, fertility, and AIDS vaccines.
Thanks to the collaboration among research centres, the studies will address two distinct facets of biomedicine: basic molecular research and more applied clinical work.
Juan Miguel Cejalvo (Valencia, 1984), an oncologist trained at the Hospital Clínico Universitario de Valencia, has been selected to do his thesis at IRB Barcelona under the PhD for Medical Doctors (PhD4MD) programme. He has already joined Roger Gomis’ Growth Control and Cancer Metastasis group, where he will perform the basic research for his project. Aleix Prat, from IDIBAPS, will lead the clinical part of this project. Both Roger Gomis and Aleix Prat have extensive experience in cancer research, especially breast cancer and metastasis. Promoted by IRB Barcelona, CRG, IDIBAPS and VHIR, the PhD4MD programme seeks to train a new generation of physician-scientists in order to facilitate the transfer of biomedical discoveries to patients.
Around 400 people gathered in a charity wine-tasting event to raise funds for metastasis research conducted at IRB Barcelona.
