The GRIB has been granted with two fellowships: one incoming fellowship for Narcís Fernández-Fuentes, reader in Bioinformatics at Aberystwyth University (UK) who will join the Structural Bioinformatics group of GRIB led by Baldo Oliva and one outgoing + return fellowship for David Tamborero, researcher of the Biomedical Genomics group of GRIB led by Núria López-Bigas. Both projects promote the technology transfer in the field of biology.
TECNIOSPRING is an international mobility fellowship programme that gives experienced researchers focused on technology transfer the possibility to develop their research career in a TECNIO centre. The program is cofunded by the catalan agency ACC10 and the european Marie Curie COFUND actions of the 7th FP.
The aim of the project funded is to create a platform of personalized cancer medicine, in summary a framework that will analyze all the flood of omics data provided by large-scale tumor studies to extract useful knowledge and identify actionable items that will guide clinical decision-making in each novel individual patient. Through this note we want to thank the generosity of those who -in some manner- contributed to this cause and to express our commitment and enthusiasm to succeed in this project.
The EMIF project aims to develop a common information framework of patient-level data that will link up and facilitate access to diverse medical and research data sources, opening up new avenues of research for scientists. To provide a focus and guidance for the development of the framework, the project will focus initially on questions relating to obesity and Alzheimer’s disease. EMIF is a European project funded by IMI.
