Rhythm of oscillations in cerebral cortex, key to understand Down Syndrome

Scientists from the Centre for Genomic Regulation, led by Dr. Mara Dierssen, and from the August Pi i Sunyer Biomedical Research Institute (IDIBAPS), led by Dr. Mavi Sánchez Vives, describe altered oscillations and synchronization in the cerebral cortex for a Down syndrome candidate gene in a mouse model. Such alterations have been linked to problems with functions as relevant as decision-making, impulsiveness, working memory or attention. This research has been published in the current issue of the Journal of Neuroscience.

Four biomedical research centres in Barcelona join forces to bridge the gap between investigation and clinical practice

The Centre for Genomic Regulation (CRG), the Institute for Research in Biomedicine (IRB Barcelona), the August Pi i Sunyer Biomedical Research Institute (IDIBAPS), and the Vall d’Hebron Research Institute (VHIR)—the two last institutes linked to the Clínic Hospital and Vall d’Hebron Hospital, both university training hospitals in Barcelona—have designed a training programme called “PhD for Medical Doctors – PhD4MD”. This is a pioneering initiative seeking to speed up the transfer of results generated by biomedical research activities in Spain to clinical practice—a process commonly known as translational medicine.
