An agreement of intentions signed this afternoon at the Catalan Government Palace presented the new International Research Institute on Leukemia (Institut Internacional de Recerca contra la Leucèmia), linked to the Josep Carreras Foundation. Taking part in the action were the President of the Catalan Government, José Montilla, the tenor Josep Carreras, the Catalan Minister for Health, Marina Geli, the Catalan Minister for Innovation, Universities and Enterprise, Josep Huguet and the Mayor of Badalona, Jordi Serra. Hospital Clínic de Barcelona and Hospital Germans Trias i Pujol, together with the Josep Carreras Foundation and the Catalan Government, will be the main sponsors of this initiative.

The new institute will be the first Spanish center, and one of only a few worldwide, dedicated exclusively to research on malignant blood diseases. The initiative is the result of three great efforts: the personal will of the tenor Josep Carreras, whose foundation has been fighting leukemia for more than 20 years; the excellent Catalan scientific standard in the field of hematology; and the support of the Catalan government in consolidating Catalonia as a pioneer in biotechnology and biomedicine.
