Estudian la implicación de una proteína en la enfermedad del hígado graso

Investigadores del Instituto de Investigaciones Biomédicas (CSIC-IDIBAPS) y del Instituto de Química Avanzada de Catalunya, del CSIC, son seleccionados para una de las seis ayudas que concede la Fundación BBVA en Biomedicina. Estudiarán la implicación de una proteína en la enfermedad del higado graso, lo que puede abrir nuevas vías para tratar enfermedades asociadas a la obesidad.


Low cost technology for the early diagnosis of cystinuria

Scientists at the Instituto de Química Avanzada de Catalunya of the CSIC have developed a technology for the precise and early diagnosis of cystinuria disease,  through urine testing. It is based on molecular networks to produce a measurable signal when some substances are linked to a specific molecule.


A new strategy deactivates antibiotic resistance bacteria

A new strategy to fight bacteria antibiotic resistance has been developed. It targets specifically the microdomains of the bacterial membrane where proteins are assembled to form protein complexes.


New materials for brain repair and neuronal regeneration

MAGBBRIS, a recently approved European project, which counts on the ICMAB-CSIC participation, will develop magnetic nano-biomaterials for brain repair and to obtaining images after a stroke. Another project led by the ICMAB-CSIC will develop new electroactive materials for neuronal regeneration.


These sponges hide secrets that could improve new generation of computers and optical fiber

“Glass sponges” have silica-based skeletal elements with an astonishing behavior: their spicules behave better than any current optical fiber. Scientists from the CEAB-CSIC are involved in an international research to understand the properties that would explain the optical properties of these sponges and to apply in the future generation of computers and optical fiber.
