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.

Genome-wide studies have identified new genes involved in susceptibility to melanoma

La Dra. Puig, el Dr. Malvehy y el Dr. PuigThe genomic analysis technologies enable the study of genetic factors related to numerous diseases. In few areas this researches brought such a big and useful volume of information as in the case of melanoma. A study published in Nature Genetics, promoted by the GenoMEL consortium, consolidates the results obtained in previous whole-genome analysis and identifies three new chromosomal regions implicated in susceptibility to melanoma. The GenoMEL consortium is funded by the European Commission and the National Institutes of Health (USA) to increase the understanding of genetic and molecular determinants of melanoma. Researchers at the Institut D’Investigacions Biomèdiques August Pi i Sunyer (IDIBAPS) and the Hospital Clínic of Barcelona have a relevant role among the promoters of this consortium led by the University of Leeds. Dr. Susana Puig leads the research team, formed by many experts as Dr. Josep Malvehy or Dr. Joan Anton Puig, and appears as an author in this Nature Genetics paper as well as in another one led from Australia. This team is supported by the CIBER of Rare Diseases (CIBERER) funded by the Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation.

The GenoMEL Project Identifies a New Region of the Genome Associated With the Risk of Melanoma

The GenoMEL Project Identifies a New Region of the Genome Associated With the Risk of Melanoma

The genetic study includes 1650 patients and 4336 control subjects from Europe and Australia. Of the three regions of the genome with small variations identified as risk factors for melanoma, one is new and two are associated with pigmentation. These risk factors are shared despite genetic variability and differences in exposure to sunlight in the countries represented in the study.  IDIBAPS – Hospital Clínic is the only Spanish center in this project, which is led by Leeds University.
