Identificados nuevos genes relacionados con el riesgo de sufrir cáncer

Investigadores del Centro de Regulación Genómica (CRG) en colaboración con el IRB Barcelona, han desarrollado un nuevo método para identificar sistemáticamente a genes que contribuyen al riesgo de sufrir cáncer hereditario

El estudio publicado en Nature Communications, es un caso de éxito sobre apertura, transparencia e intercambio de datos en ciencia.

Looking for the best

Part of the European Research Council’s reasoning for providing their coveted Starting Grants is to “provide top talent with good conditions at the right time to thrive.” For the team led by Fran Supek (b. Zagreb, Croatia, 1981), the right time has just arrived with the award of a Starting Grant worth 1.5 million euros of funding. His project, called HYPER-INSIGHT, was among the 13% of successful proposals of the 3,085 applications made to the 2017 ‘Starting Grants’ Call.

Europa impulsa la investigación de Supek en genómica del cáncer

Las becas de inicio de carrera del ERC apoyan a jóvenes investigadores con talento durante 5 años.

El líder de grupo del IRB Barcelona se centrará en los genomas de tumores hipermutados para detectar vulnerabilidades del cáncer.

El IRB Barcelona abre un nuevo laboratorio para el análisis de "Big Data" genómico

El científico croata Fran Supek lanza su laboratorio “Genoma Data Science” (aGENDAS).

aGENDAS comienza este abril y promoverá la investigación en “Big Data”, un área también estratégica para el Barcelona Institute of Science and Technology (BIST).

Con este nuevo grupo, el Instituto alberga un total de 24 laboratorios y 7 plataformas tecnológicas.

Science needs fewer barriers between fields, more time and less aggressiveness, says Maria Macias

It was the first time that Group Leader and ICREA researcher Maria Macias organised a Barcelona BioMed Conference, in collaboration with the BBVA Foundation, held on 28-30 November 2016. When asked about the experience, she highlights that having been able to draw together experts from very diverse research fields and backgrounds was “extremely fulfilling” for her. The conference programme covered areas spanning genomics to systems biology, cellular structural biology, big data, and patients-focussed approaches.
