The research, led by Cima Universidad de Navarra, sheds light on new possibilities for addressing various types of cancer. This work has been carried out in collaboration with Dr Carolina Armengol, leader of IGTP’s Childhood Liver Oncology (C-LOG) group, a pioneer in the study of childhood liver cancer in Spain.
Two projects from IGTP funded by ”la Caixa” Foundation to transition their innovative research from the laboratory to patients
The first urine test that detects kidney fibrosis as an alternative to kidney biopsies, an initiative from the IVECAT group, and a project applying artificial intelligence to rapidly categorise stroke patients and enhance their recovery chances, from the Neurovascular Research group, are two of the fifteen projects from Catalan research centres selected within the 2023 call of the new CaixaImpulse Healthcare Innovation programme.
An article published in Nature Communications on the pilot study carried out in Catalonia to evaluate the self-collection of biological samples reveals the high acceptability of the proposal and the key role of diagnosis in people without symptoms of mpox.
