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.

Developmental biology offers the key to finding solutions for paediatric cancer, metastasis, and regeneration

From today and until Wednesday, 150 scientists from around the world will debate plasticity and cell migration in the new gathering in the Barcelona Biomed Conference Series, organised by IRB Barcelona and the BBVA Foundation.

The 28th conference in this series brings together biologists devoted to the study of development in animal models, specialists in cancer, and paediatricians.

Researchers dig up new molecular details on "the other type" of stem cells

Scientists at IRB Barcelona and CSIC reveal that the combination of two molecular signals determines which cells that have already differentiated can regain their stem cell properties.

Their studies on fruit flies allow for advancements in the field of regenerative medicine and a better understanding of processes involved in cancer.

A technique dating back to 1935 is recovered for cancer research in flies

Scientists at IRB Barcelona publish the details of an old tissue transplant method for Drosophila melanogaster.

This technique allows the study of tumour growth and tissue regeneration
