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.
Last Friday, September 24, the “European Researchers’ Night” took place, an event that is held on a European scale in more than 300 cities in 30 different countries. The objective of this event is to publicize the diversity of science and its impact on the daily lives of citizens in a close and inspiring way. For yet another year, IBEC has not wanted to miss it and has been present at various activities.
Bioengineering is powerful and reaches the classroom thanks to a study on nanotechnology, carried out by students from the Joan Pelegrí school. Marina Pujol, a student of the educational program “Crazy about Bioengineering” that takes place at IBEC, transmitted her passion for bioengineering to two of her classmates and they have written a report and recorded a video on nanotechnology.
