The IGTP in IRISCAT, the new alliance of health research centers in Catalonia

The IRISCAT Alliance is a cooperative work space formed by the 7 research and innovation institutes linked to the ICS, in a first phase; the mechanisms for future incorporation of other centers will be established. The objective of the alliance is to take advantage of the synergies of the institutes to enhance and make the translational and clinical research of the Catalan health system more competitive, in order to enhance this reference hub in southern Europe.

A team at Germans Trias treat a patient with a new bio-implant to repair heart tissue after a heart attack

The pioneering surgery that took place last May at the Germans Trias Hospital. The bio-implant, based on umbilical cord stem cells, has been developed by the Cardiovascular Disease Research Group (ICREC) at Germans Trias, led by Antoni Bayés-Genís in a research line, which they have been pursuing for 10 years. The new therapy has been developed with the collaboration of the Blood and Tissue Bank (BST) and the Institute of Bioengineering of Catalonia (IBEC); this is the first step of the application in clinical practice and the group will continue to monitor safety and the capacity of cardiac tissue to recover
