Studies on the genetic control of development have proven to be very been fruitful in unveiling the mechanisms impaired in many disease conditions.

Embryonic development inspires regenerative medicine

The European Molecular Biology Lab (EMBL) in Barcelona and IRB Barcelona bring together leading scientists in the conference “Morphogenetic Engineering”, an event supported by the BBVA Foundation.

The merge of various disciplines of developmental biology is key to enhancing our knowledge of tissue development and repair, processes that find their most direct applications in regenerative medicine.

“One day we will be able to re-build damaged organs and keep the whole body fit and healthy. But right now we must strengthen our knowledge of how tissues are built and how they are maintained,” say James Sharpe, Head of EMBL Barcelona, and Marco Milán, coordinator of the Cell and Developmental Biology programme.

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
 

A study on cell migration provides insights into the movement of cancer cells

Using Drosophila melanogaster, researchers at IRB Barcelona discover that during multiple cell migrations a single cell can act as leader, dragging the others with it.
