Institut d'Investigacions Biomèdiques August Pi i Sunyer - IDIBAPS - News http://www.idibaps.org/actualitat/en_noticies/ IDIBAPS researchers decipher how leukaemia's genome works http://www.idibaps.org/actualitat/en_noticies/55181/idibaps-researchers-decipher-how-leukaemias-genome-works A team of researchers from IDIBAPS show for the first time the complete epigenome of chronic lymphocytic leukaemia, the most common type of leukaemia. The study, published in Nature Medicine, provides a high-resolution map of the functions of the genome, which steps forward into cancer molecular research. The comparison of the map for this type of leukaemia with the map of healthy cells shows hundreds of regions that change their functionality in leukaemia which help to understand the illness better and represent potential targets for the development and application of new therapies. ]]> May 22, 2018 Hospital Clínic and IDIBAPS researchers participate in the new European clinical guidelines for the management of hepatocellular carcinoma http://www.idibaps.org/actualitat/en_noticies/54908/hospital-clinic-and-idibaps-researchers-participate-in-the-new-european-clinical-guidelines-for-the-management-of-hepatocellular-carcinoma Two researchers from the Hepatic Oncology Unit at Hospital Clínic-IDIBAPS have participated in the development of the new clinical practice guidelines for the management of hepatocellular carcinoma developed by the European Association for the Study of the Liver (EASL). It is a consensus document that marks the road map in the diagnosis, treatment and monitoring of this type of cancer, which accounts for 90% of primary liver tumors. ]]> April 12, 2018 Gisela Sugranyes, awarded by the European Society of Psychiatry http://www.idibaps.org/actualitat/en_noticies/54807/gisela-sugranyes-awarded-by-the-european-society-of-psychiatry Gisela Sugranyes, head of the research group on Multimodal neuroimaging in high risk and early psychosis at IDIBAPS, psychiatrist at Hospital Clinic and researcher of CIBERSAM, has received a "Research Award" by the European Society of Psychiatry (EPA) in the category of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry.
