En el IBEC estamos trabajando para descifrar cómo se desarrolla la Covid-19, para poder evitar su avance, encontrar tratamientos más eficaces y mitigar las secuelas de quienes ya la han padecido o la van a padecer.
Nuestro propósito es acelerar esta investigación, por eso esta vez te vamos a pedir algo inusual: "NO TE LAVES LAS MANOS", necesitamos que te impliques.
Researchers from the Institute for Bioengineering of Catalonia (IBEC), led by Dr. Nuria Montserrat, in collaboration with international researchers, have identified the genes that could protect the kidney from chronic damage. The identification was carried out using mini-kidneys created from human stem cells and generated in the laboratory using bioengineering techniques.
An international study led by IBEC researcher Giuseppe Battaglia identifies a mechanism and conditions that allow molecules to efficiently cross the blood-brain barrier, the protective layer of the brain. This study describes the role of protein LRP1, bringing light to safe and efficient entrance of drugs to the brain.
On the International Day of Women and Girls in Science, the Institute for Bioengineering of Catalonia (IBEC) presents this February the 11th a female superhero figure which aims to reach out to the general public, in a popular way, one of the disciplines that are called to impact the medicine of the future: bioengineering.
Last Friday 5th of February, the Spanish Minister for Science and Innovation, Pedro Duque, visited the Institute for Bioengineering of Catalonia, in order to know first-hand the latest advances in bioengineering for health.
