Curiosity will be the object of study of the scientific experiment “Being a Curious Music-Mind” of IDIBELL with DJ Alicia Carrera, which will take place at the CCCB and Sala Salamandra on October 29 and 30.

miR-424~503, a group of microRNAs that control the development of a type of breast cancer

IDIBELL and UB researchers, together with Mount Sinai, have described a group of microRNAs that would regulate Wnt/β-catenin signalling pathway-dependent breast cancers.

Two new genetic variants associated with suicide attempts help disentangle related risk factors

For the first time, one of the variants identified is unrelated to psychiatric disorders and would contribute through other factors such as smoking, insomnia, or the propensity to risk-taking.

The ability to inhibit mitophagy converts fluorizoline into a promising antitumor agent

Fluorizoline was known for its pro-apoptotic action on various tumor cells. Now, a study by IDIBELL and the University of Barcelona shows that apart from promoting cell death, this compound inhibits the degradation of mitochondria.

Cervical cytologies are not sensitive enough to detect endometrial cancer

The screening programs of cervical cancers diagnosticated by cervical cytologies have reduced the incidence and mortality of this cancer. However, a retrospective study of IDIBELL and ICO that included 371 women treated at the Hospital de Bellvitge has shown that these tests are not effective for endometrial cancer diagnosis.

IDIBELL participates in a study aimed to reduce the likelihood of liver failure in older transplant donors
