Cancer metastases slowly unveil their weaknesses

Advances in research into the immunological evasion, metabolism and latency of metastatic cancer cells allow the identification of potential targets to test therapies.

IRB Barcelona and the BBVA Foundation invite 20 renowned international scientists working in the field of cancer metastasis to a gathering in Barcelona.

After the scientific conference, IRB Barcelona and ESADE have organised a debate on how to translate scientific research to society.

10th charity wine tasting in support of research into cancer and metastasis at IRB Barcelona

"Vi per Vida", a charity run by sommelier Xavi Ayala, promotes social awareness of the importance of research.

The event will be held this Sunday, February 25 in Calella.

Genes activated in metastasis also drive the first stages of tumour growth

In spite of the difference between the cell functions responsible for giving rise to a tumour and for the metastasis of this same tumour, studies at IRB Barcelona using the fly Drosophila melanogaster reveal that some genes can drive both phenomena.

IRB Barcelona paves the way to the use of immunotherapy to treat aggressive colon tumours and their metastasis

A team headed by ICREA researcher Eduard Batlle discovers that immune system-stimulating treatments combined with a TGF-beta inhibitor are effective against colon cancer.

The researchers developed a mouse model that mimics advanced human colon cancer. This model has allowed them to study the immune system response for the first time.
