NeuroHeal Biomedicals has been created

A research team led by Dr. Caty Casas, has created the company NeuroHeal Biomedicals to develop a new neuroprotective treatment that accelerates the regeneration of damaged peripheral nerves.

NeuroHeal, the drug proposed by the research team, is a combination of two active products designed to encourage neurons to activate their own endogenous mechanisms of neuroprotection and nerve regeneration. The team innovated a platform to discover NeuroHeal based on the use of systems biology approaches and machine learning.

Open Doors Day

Open Doors Day

To celebrate the Science Week, we organized an Open Doors Day - a day in which high school students visit our center.

Students from the Joaquima Pla i Ferreres high school, the Thau de Sant Cugat School and the Liceu Francès came in our laboratories to find out what we are investigating.

They also had the opportunity to talk with researchers and PhD students about what they did to become a scientist.

It was a real pleasure to have them here!

Two ERA-NET NEURON projects

Two ERA-NET NEURON projects

Two studies with the participation of Institute members received an ERA-NET NEURON JTC 2019 (European Research Area Networks) grant, awarded by the European Commission.

The BioStress project, coordinated by Dr. Raül Andero, aims to find biological and psychological biomarkers to predict the probability of suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder and depression after a traumatic event.

The GEPI-BIOPSY project, coordinated by Dr. Javier Labad, with the participation of Dr. Antornio Armario, Dr. Jesús Giraldo and Dr. Roser Nadal, seeks to determine biomarkers that can be useful in schizophrenia diagnosis and monitorization.

Congratulations!
