IBEC principal investigator and ICREA professor Núria Montserrat appears on the TV3 news program talking about alternatives to animal experimentation.
Núria Montserrat, ICREA Research Professor at IBEC, appears in the media for her breakthrough between diabetes and COVID-19 thanks to human mini-kidneys created in the lab.
In an international collaboration, researchers led by Nuria Montserrat, ICREA Research Professor at IBEC, have generated human mini-kidneys that simulate the kidney of a person with diabetes in the early stages of the disease. These diabetic mini-kidneys open the door to studying, among others, the relationship between diabetes and COVID-19.
Núria Montserrat, principal investigator at the Institute for Bioengineering of Catalonia (IBEC), is featured in the newspaper “El País” for her work on the development of organoids through pluripotent stem cells that, in the future, could be used for transplants.
Núria Montserrat, principal investigator at IBEC, appears on RTVE’s “REPOR” program, where she talks about using mini-organs to identify new therapeutic therapies and new drugs.
The media have published the new discovery made by scientists from the Center for Genomic Regulation (CRG) and financed mainly by a CaixaResearch Health Research Project of the Fundació “la Caixa” awarded to Pia Cosma (CRG), Nuria Montserrat (IBEC) and Justin Christopher D’Antin (Barraquer).
Fusing human retinal cells with adult stem cells could be a potential therapeutic strategy to treat retinal damage and visual impairment, according to the findings of a new study published in the journal eBioMedicine, with participation of Nuria Montserrat´s Group at IBEC. The hybrid cells act by awakening the regenerative potential of human retinal tissue, previously only thought to be the preserve of cold-blood vertebrates.
Núria Montserrat, ICREA Research Professor and group leader at the Institute for Bioengineering of Catalonia (IBEC), appears in the media for her participation in the round table of the Barcelona Woman Acceleration Week 2022 (BWAW).
