TV3’s Telethon 2012 dedicated to cancer will fund seven IDIBAPS projects

The TV3 Telethon Foundation held this evening a ceremony at the Barcelona Biomedical Research Park, where they presented the projects selected to be funded by the TV3 Telethon 2012 (Marató de TV3), dedicated to cancer. This initiative, which combines scientific divulgation and fundraising, is an effort of the Catalan TV station which annually, since 1992, discovers the best of society and research institutions. In its last edition it collected over 12 milion euros, now distributed in 42 research projects which underwent a rigorous evaluation process. Here we present the seven IDIBAPS projects chosen to be funded.

The event was presented by journalists Ariadna Oltra and Oscar Dalmau, the conductors of the latest edition of the telethon which lasted over 15 hours. The presentation was attended by Brauli Duart, director of the Catalan Broadcasting Corporation and the Board of the TV3 Marathon Foundation, Jaume Casals, director of UPF, and Boi Ruiz, Minister of Health of the Generalitat of Catalonia. All of them underlined the importance of the TV3 Marathon.
