Nuria Montserrat presents to the Minister of Science and Innovation her project to fight coronavirus using bioengineered organoids

Nuria Montserrat, Group Leader at IBEC and ICREA Research Professor, meets with the Minister of Science and Innovation, Pedro Duque, to present her ACE2-ORG project, which seeks, by using organoids generated from bioengineering techniques, possible therapeutic solutions against the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

The Minister of Science and Innovation held a videoconference meeting this Thursday, June 18, with the responsibles of five research projects that are working on the development of new technologies to deal with SARS-CoV-2 and which are being financed by the Fund COVID-19, managed by the Carlos III Health Institute (ISCIII).

Núria Montserrat in a feature article at the ERC’s covid-19 section: Stopping coronavirus at the gate

ERC grantee Nuria Montserrat and her team create tiny kidneys which are proving to be key in the search for coronavirus drugs. The researcher is working with other international researchers and found that a trial drug could block early stages of COVID19. The ERC has created a section which is updated with the latest news about the ERC-funded research in coronavirus.

Josep Samitier and Núria Montserrat at the “Engineering and Manufacture of Living Systems” workshop in China

Last 9-11th of October took place in Beijing the workshop on “Engineering and Manufacture of Living Systems”. The aim of the workshop was to bring together multi-disciplinary researchers to review the latest advances and discuss the future directions in the design and manufacture of engineered living systems, and their integration amongst the researchers gathered at this international workshop.

The major topics discussed during the workshop were: to consider issues related to translation of engineered living systems from the laboratory to the clinic and to industry, review enabling and emerging techniques for using pluripotent cells from various sources such as cell spheroids, organoids and organs-on-a-chip, discuss the ethical, societal and regulatory issues associated with the development and manufacture of engineered living systems and envision future research, development and synergies at the integration and interface of biomanufacturing and engineering living systems amongst others. The meeting was organised by Tsinghua University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
