  • Reading the book of our DNA

    How can we find new technologies which will help us analyse the genome quickly and more cheaply? In the video, scientists explain to us why they are close to coming to a solution where the method will be available in everyday medicine which will help improve treatment. 

  • Identifying cells responsible for the origin of metastases

    Until now, treatment for colorectal cancer was aimed at treating all the cells in a tumor in the same way. Researchers at the Colorectal Cancer Laboratory of the Institute for Research in Biomedicine in Barcelona are developing a technology to identify some stemcells and their genes in a colon tumor, that are to be responsible for metastases.

  • Do we speak the same genome?

    In this video, researchers explain to us a new project which attempts to unify the method used in different laboratories to read the information written in genes. The aim is to made advances in the techniques which will help us discover more about the genetic base of diseases which should help us prevent, diagnose and treat them. 

  • Can you cure with cells?

    What options for the treatment of disease do stem cells offer us? In the video we'll see how different researchers explain the research project they're working on which aims to produce different cells from stem cells with the aim of developing therapies for regenerating tissue in...

  • New drugs to fight tuberculosis

    Do you want to find out more about a project aimed at discovering drugs which can be used to treat resistant tuberculosis? Different countries are working together to find molecules with the right pharmacological properties for eliminating the bacterium. 

  • New drugs against new threats

    How can we protect ourselves against new viruses? Different researchers explain some research projects which aim to identify targets and design new drugs to act as models in the fight against new viruses. Discover more about the different branches of biology involved.

  • Understanding schizophrenia

    In this video, a couple of psychiatrists and a researcher explain a project which aims to discover the genetic and environmental causes of this disorder which affects around 1% of young people. We still don't know what mechanisms cause it or how it can be cured, but we're working on it. 

  • How does air pollution affect our brain?

    In this video, researchers explain a project aimed at discovering how air pollution can affect our brains, particularly in terms of intelligence and behaviour. The aim is to discover whether there is a correlation between the number of ultrafine particles and ADHD.

  • New paths against drug resistance

    What role does HIV drug resistance have in current treatments? Can this resistance be passed from one individual to another? Laboratories are looking for new drugs which act on the different stages of the replication cycle.

  • Joining efforts to find the HIV vaccine

    What does current research into an HIV vaccine look like? In this video, scientists explain the characteristics a vaccine would need to have in order to be effective against HIV, and why that is not so simple. A similar vaccine could be used to combat other infectious diseases.
