The educational Tandem, formed by the Bellvitge Institute and IDIBELL has closed the 2019-2020 academic year launching a challenge for 3rd ESO students: researching the new coronavirus. The emergence of COVID-19 and the situation of confinement motivated a project that aimed to promote knowledge and research on different aspects related to viruses, the human body […]
Identified genes that predispose to cancer by impairing the protective function of the immune system
The study shows that the involvement of certain genes that predispose to cancer also affects the immune system, which could facilitate tumor growth.
In the specific case of breast cancer, the involvement of the SH2B3 gene, corresponding to a lymphocyte protein, increases the predisposition to develop cancer.
The epidemic caused by the new coronavirus has negatively impacted millions of people around the world. Confinement has forced citizens to drastically change the way of relating, working and understanding everyday reality. To evaluate various parameters related to health and habits before and after confinement, the Psychiatry research group of the Bellvitge Biomedical Research Institute
When nucleotide levels drop, a common step during initiation of aggressive cancers, ribosomes biogenesis detects it and prevent DNA replication, as this could lead to genome damage.
IDIBELL is seeking postdoctoral researchers interested in appling to Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions grant (MSCA-IF). Join us!
A recent donation from the Coordinating Association “Viladecans against Cancer” raises the scoreboard of the #BellvitgeInvestiga crowdfunding initiative to more than € 60,000.
We will use these funds to accelerate research projects against COVID-19.
The documentary narrates, with the voice of health and research personnel, the transformation of IDIBELL and the Bellvitge University Hospital to face the pandemic, from the doubling of beds for critical patients, to the launch of multiple research projects for better understanding of the new coronavirus.
Many diseases are associated with a dysregulation in blood vessel formation. Now an IDIBELL group has defined a model of pericyte maturation during vessel formation and has developed tools to study them, which could help to decipher their contribution to these diseases.
ModGraProDep is an innovative system that, through artificial intelligence and the design of probabilistic models, improves the prediction of survival indicators in breast cancer patients. This study, published in the journal Artificial Intelligence in Medicine, has been led by Ramon Clèries, professor at the Department of Clinical Sciences of the Faculty of Medicine and Health
