IBEC researchers have used a state-of-the-art analysis technique to evaluate new drug combinations to successfully treat acute lymphoblastic leukemia. This study brings personalised medicine closer to the clinic for this cancer type.
IBEC researchers develop a device that allows to grow biofilms and analyze their susceptibility to different antibiotics in a simple way and using patient samples. BiofilmChip, a low-cost, easy-to-use diagnostic device, opens the way to finding effective and custom treatments against chronic infections produced by biofilms.
The Institute for Bioengineering of Catalonia (IBEC) presents its strategy for sustainability which is committed to promote more sustainable practices in research and administration. With this initiative IBEC, an international excellence center focused on bioengineering solutions for health, takes the lead to fight climate change, pollution and non-sustainable practices with more strategy and actions.
IBEC Faster Future program has made possible, over the last two years, and thanks to donor contributions, the study of antibodies as the basis of a therapeutic product for the treatment of Parkinson’s. The researchers now present the scientific advances and will continue working to try to respond to one of the greatest challenges of modern medicine: neurodegenerative pathologies such as Parkinson’s.
