    New 3D models for the study of chronic rhinosinusitis

    According to an article published in PLoSOne, researchers from IDIBAPS reconstitute a new nasal respiratory epithelium from mature stem cells of the nasal mucosa of both healthy and inflamed tissue. They have met their objectives by using a technique based in the exposure of primary culture cells to the air.

    Euroimmun acquires the rights of a patent developed by Dr. Graus and Dr. Dalmau for the diagnosis of autoimmune diseases

    Dr. Graus and Dr. Dalmau have developed a technology for the diagnosis, prognosis and treatment of patients with an autoimmune disease associated to sleep disorders. It is based on detecting the presence of antibodies against the neuronal protein IGLON5 by immunocytochemistry of transfected cells.

    IDIBAPS participates in the Graphene Flagship

    In the context of the Graphene Week 2014, the European Commission announced that the Graphene Flagship, one of the largest European research initiatives, is doubling its size and now includes more than 140 organizations from 23 countries. IDIBAPS is one of new 66 partners of the consortium through the team of Maria Victoria Sánchez-Vives, MD, PhD, ICREA Research Professor and team leader of the IDIBAPS group Systems Neuroscience. Professor Sanchez-Vives joins the Neurographene project, coordinated by Rosa Villa, PhD, from the CIBER-BBN Biomonitoring Group at the Barcelona Microelectronics Institute (IMB-CNM), and whose aim is to validate graphene as a brain interface material and to develop devices for both recording neural activity and for brain stimulation. The other partner in this project is the Austrian company Guger Technologies.

    A mutation in progenitor cells identified as origin and therapeutic target for cholangiocarcinoma

    In recent years, cancer research has been focused on the identification of mutations in genes involved in tumor development. Nevertheless, the molecular pathways that contribute to the progression of the disease remain quite unknown. The journal Nature publishes a paper in which an international team of scientists, led by Nabeel Bardesy, PhD, from the Harvard Medical School, suggests that a mutation in the IDH enzyme (isocitrate dehydrogenase), that occurs in liver progenitor cells, promotes the progression of cholangiocarcinoma, a type of liver cancer. Josep M. Llovet, MD, PhD, ICREA Research Professor at the HCC Translational Research Lab of the Liver Unit at IDIBAPS and Director of Mount Sinai Liver Cancer Program at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai (New York) has collaborated in the study together with Daniela Sia, PhD, and Helena Cornellà, members of the same research group.
