Gisela Sugranyes awarded with a NARSAD Young Investigator Grant

The Brain and Behaviour Research Foundation has awarded a research grant to Gisela Sugranyes, 50/50 researcher at the Multimodal neuroimaging in high risk and early psychosis IDIBAPS research team. The ‘NARSAD 2017 Young Investigator Grant’ is endowed with 70,000 for two years and is one of the most prestigious awards given to young researchers in the field of neuroscience. In this case, the funds will be used in the study of psychosis, specifically in determining the role played by an alteration in glutamatergic transmission in the clinical and cognitive manifestations of the disorder.

IDIBAPS researchers describe the mechanism by which SOX11 promotes relapses in mantle cell lymphoma

Researchers at IDIBAPS publish an article in the Blood journal in which they show the mechanism by which the transcription factor SOX11 participates in the dissemination and aggressiveness of mantle cell lymphoma. They have discovered that SOX11 promotes the creation of a protective environment that ensures survival and resistance to treatments of tumor cells. The study was coordinated by Dr. Virginia Amador, researcher at the Human and experimental functional oncomorphology IDIBAPS team. Read the rest of this entry »

Jaume Bosch coordinates the guidance on the management of portal hypertensive bleeding in cirrhosis published in Hepatology

Hepatology, the official journal of the American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases, has published a practice guidance entitled Portal Hypertensive Bleeding in Cirrhosis: Risk Stratification, Diagnosis, and Management. The study is coordinated by Dr. Jaume Bosch, hepatologist at Hospital Clínic and head of the research team Liver hemodynamics and portal hypertension at IDIBAPS. The other three authors, Dr. Juan G. Abraldes and Dr. Annalisa Berzigotti, are former IDIBAPS researchers, and Dr. Guadalupe Garcia-Tsao made a stay at this institution. The main newness of this guidance is the adaptation of the treatments to the various phases of cirrhosis. Read the rest of this entry »

A small group of neurons modulates the amount of insulin that the pancreas must produce

The brain is key in the regulation of appetite, body weight and metabolism. Specifically, there is a small group of hypothalamus neurons, called POMC, that detect and integrate signals that inform on the energy state of the organism and activate the appropriate physiological responses. These neurons are sensitive to fluctuations in nutrients such as glucose, fatty acids and amino acids.

Now, a research project co-chaired by Marc Claret, at the August Pi i Sunyer Biomedical Research Institute – IDIBAPS, and Antonio Zorzano, at the Institute for Research in Biomedicine (IRB Barcelona), both members of the CIBERDEM network, reveals the connection between POMC neurons at the hypothalamus and the release of insulin by the pancreas and describes new molecular mechanisms involved in this connection. The researchers publish the study in Cell Metabolism and the first authors are Sara Ramírez and Alicia G. Gómez-Valadés, both at IDIBAPS. Read the rest of this entry »
